Discount Retailer Signs 10-Year Lease

LOS ANGELES (June 30, 2020) Crosbie Gliner Schiffman Southard & Swanson LLP (CGS3) – representing Decron Properties Inc. – has finalized a 10-year lease with Dollar Tree Stores, Inc., a Fortune 200 company with stores nationwide, at 1778 W. Olive Avenue in the Merced Marketplace. Marking the company’s third location in Merced, Calif., the discount variety retail venue will span approximately 9,459 square feet and is slated to open August 2020.

“Having two other successful locations in Merced, Dollar Tree is a proven commodity in the market and should be a tremendous asset to the Marketplace and an excellent addition to the merchandising mix,” said Decron’s commercial division director, Tim Kushner.

Dollar Tree is a discount retailer which now operates 15,370 stores across 48 states and five Canadian provinces. Open seven days a week, the discount retail stores offer an assortment of merchandise priced at $1 or less.

According to Chris Rizza, a CGS3 partner who helped facilitate the transaction, the deal presented some challenges as it was fully executed and negotiated during the COVID-19 lockdown, yet ultimately was a “win-win” for all parties involved.

“Who would have thought any new retail deals were going to survive – let alone be completed – during this unprecedented time,” Rizza said. “Both parties were motivated, and, fortunately, we were able to navigate through various issues and mitigate the risk of a number of uncertainties in a cooperative manner.”
