Specialty Leasing

What is Specialty Leasing?

Specialty leasing in the retail space is the industry name for short-term retail space leasing in malls, shopping centers, and other retail centers. It includes a variety of leasing options that extend outside the standard retail space leasing and rentals. RMUs (Retail Merchandising Units), retail carts, mall booth rentals, kiosk space, and pop-up shop leasing all fall under the specialty leasing category and are intended to add short-term retail space and more flexible leasing options for businesses as well as increase the variety of retail selections and spaces available to consumers within the mall space.

Specialty leasing is a great option for smaller businesses looking to get off the ground with a more short-term, less expensive, and flexible option as well as for larger businesses looking to gain a more well-rounded exposure to shoppers throughout a mall.
