The location experts


We are specialists in retail locations

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

Maybe you are opening a new store and need the perfect space at the perfect location? Or looking for the right leaseholder for a vacated space? Or maybe you are closing an outlet and need a good termination agreement with the owner of the property?

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.

Why choose us?

There are many reasons why you should choose Libak Retail as your location partner. Here are the top three.

We are specialised in retail

We are not your typical real estate agents. We work with retail and retail alone. Our experience is vast and we are highly specialised. We know both Food/Non-food, Food & Beverage, Leisure and Amusement inside out and our customers benefit from our deep understanding of the field.

WE ARE NATIONWIDE IN DENMARK, GERMANY, AUSTRIA, SWITZERLAND AND SWEDEN

In addition to our profound geographical know-how and extensive network in Denmark, we also operate in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Sweden.

Your business is our business

We’re all about finding the best possible solutions for your business. We never recommend solutions that we are not 100% confident about, and confidentiality is at the top of our agenda.
