Libak Retail offers a range of services in the field of location facilitation for retailers.

Select the best match for your situation below, and explore our offerings.

Leasing or buying a new location

Are you opening a new store somewhere? We have prime locations available all over the country.

Vacating a location prematurely

Are you or one of your leaseholders closing an existing store or moving to a new location?
We can help you find both a new leaseholder and new, more suitable location.

Find the right leaseholder or buyer for your property

We help you find the proper leaseholder for your property – a leaseholder that fits the existing retail mix in the best possible way.
We can also help find a leaseholder for any excess areas you may have in your current property.
