Launch Your Next Business Venture at Rosedale
Posted May 20, 2020
We’ve definitely experienced certain changes in the retail landscape amid COVID-19. But as any successful entrepreneur will tell you, every challenge presents new opportunities to grow and thrive in your industry! This is especially true for startup business owners who now face the ultimate question: should you invest in a retail space to launch your new brand?
When we reopened our Rosedale Center, following the expiration of the governor’s stay-at-home order, we were greeted by a long line of eager shoppers ready to get back to the fun, vibrant retail destination they remember. A place where friends and family can explore their favorite brands, discover artful exhibits, and start to experience a type of “normal” that they haven’t felt in quite a while.
So, what does this mean for your new business? Shoppers crave the convenience and familiarity of a retail space to find new products, shop their favorite merchandise, and discover new businesses! By leasing a space at our shopping center, you’ll be located in the center of all the action and entertainment—not to mention more than 14 million visitors per year.
Why Renting a Retail Space at Rosedale is a Great Investment
With businesses slowly reopening and Minnesotans starting to venture outside their homes, now is a great time to plan ahead for your next business startup. The first step is connecting with our leasing experts and telling us a little bit more about your brand and goals.
Here’s how it works:
Present Your Concept
Using our online form, you can describe your new business endeavor in detail. Tell us about your plans for the retail space.
- Are you selling merchandise or is this for non-traditional uses (i.e. medical, education, CPAs, or office space)?
Our team will follow up with you and walk you through our available options and favorable lease terms to ensure you have the space for the time you want (i.e. seasonal or long-term) and that it’s equipped with the tools you need to run it seamlessly (e.g. pushcarts, Kiosks, etc.).
Prep Your Marketing
In addition to working with our team on the specifics of your lease agreement, you’ll also want to discuss your needs for marketing your brand. Consider the following questions:
- How do you plan to attract and engage shoppers?
- Will you require promotional banners, a branded sign, or creative displays?
At Rosedale, we offer unlimited opportunities to help promote your business within our center, including billboard style advertising and free-standing displays. And our team will help plan your launch and build momentum for your grand opening!
Prepare Your Space
Creating a space that showcases your brand’s identity and creates an inviting atmosphere to attract shoppers is essential. But with new state policies in place to help maintain safe, social distancing practices, this part can get a bit tricky.
At Rosedale, our team will help you to prepare your space so that it represents your brand, welcomes new shoppers, and adheres to all local policies and procedures to keep your customers and your team safe!
