Retail space for lease – for businesses

Taurus also represents tenants searching for office and retail space for rent. Representing tenants is completely different and requires unique perspective, as the tenant’s needs are often opposed to most landlords. Having extensive experience with retail space for rent from a landlord’s perspective, Cliff can dovetail tenant’s objectives with a landlord in a non-confrontational manner.

Retail leasing market

Our expertise in the marketplace over the years offers us a unique perspective that is available to you. Over the years, we have seen vacancy rates for retail space in the Surrey area fluctuate significantly. Retail in Surrey is unique given a number of geographical characteristics. Sharing a boarding with the US provides stores a significant competitive disadvantage given that pricing on most items in the US is significantly lower. When the Canadian dollar was a par with the US we saw a large number of local retailers suffer greatly with cross boarder shoppers. Perhaps with a lower dollar, local stores will regain some strength.

Internet shopping has yet to have a full impact on retailers but it is coming. Look for more stores like IKEA that has announces a number of pickup type locations with minimal retail. The focus is on “by online, pick up locally”.
Taurus commercial has operated through many business cycles and gained significant market knowledge, which brings value for both landlords and tenants in negotiations.
