Tenant Representation for Iconic Brands and Emerging Retailers

Great brands and great concepts must grow to satisfy investors and remain relevant. In today’s retail real estate environment, growing retailers are faced with challenges ranging from tough-to-penetrate markets and limited new space supply to shifts in customer profiles and trade areas. Many retailers need a presence in core urban areas requiring knowledge of what spaces are coming available before they do and insightful research to help make decisions quickly when they do. This strong competition for space has made deep landlord relationships a vital part of today’s retail store growth strategy.

Retail store locations have proven to be an important growth strategy even for online and digitally native brands, but how do you attain the space you need and stay one step ahead of shifts in the local market? SRS is helping hundreds of retailers, restaurants, and other retail space users face these challenges by strategically identifying, negotiating, and acquiring new locations, whether they are leases, purchases, or turnkey developments.
