When you are looking for space to lease with your broker, it is really important to evaluate the type of centers you are looking at. There are many different types of retail/shopping centers, but the one that many people choose to start their business is the grocery anchored center.

Grocery stores/Supermarkets provide tremendous value because they act as a draw. Think about it…people have to go to the supermarket at least once a week to get their essentials such as food, household products, bottled water, etc.So, when you are opening your first retail operation, consider where you place it. It is even worth paying a premium to be in a grocery anchored center as opposed to an unanchored strip center when all things are equal. You have a magnet that is likely to bring some potential customers to you business.
