How tough can it be when the rent is free?
Do you have a great idea for a retail business? Maybe the only thing holding you back is the fear of what it would cost to rent store space. Huntington Mall has a way to remove that fear for one budding retailer with the Small Shop Showdown. Here’s how it works: Between January 6, 2020 and February 17, 2020, pitch your potential business online at www.huntingtonmall.com/smallshop. Fill out the application form, explaining the business plan for your product or service. Huntington Mall’s leasing staff will evaluate the proposals and announce one lucky winner on March 3. The winner of the Small Shop Showdown will enjoy 26 weeks of FREE RENT inside the mall. This new business will be able to take advantage of a prime location with lots of customer traffic from May 1 – October 31, 2020. In addition to the rent-free store space, the winner will receive a package of promotional assistance to help get the business off the ground, including posters, a news release, digital signage and advertising on social media. (Please note: The winner must be ready to open for business May 1, 2020. A complete list of contest details and restrictions is available on the website.)
