This necessitated the immediate sale of 128 fee-simple properties (predominantly freestanding buildings).

Payless ShoeSource
  Excess Space was retained by Payless ShoeSource in 1995, when it was spun off from the May Department Stores. The project consisted of analysis, due dillgence and then the disposition of unprofitable or overlapping locations. Payless' retail stores are located nationwide in strip centers, free-standing buildings, downtown locations and malls. Excess Space remains a valued partner to Payless ShoeSource as additional disposition sites continue to be added to the project annually.

  As a result of acquisitions and rapid growth, Rent-A-Center had several hundred locations that no longer fit their long-term real estate objectives. In conjunction with our local broker network, we were able to quickly achieve our client's goal of terminating leasehold obligations by procurring potential replacement tenants for the locations. Utilizing these prospects as leverage, we were able to significantly mitigate the economic obligation on Rent-A-Center leases, by negotiating cost-effective lease terminations.

  Excess Space has been a trusted partner to STAPLES since 1995. Similar to many very successful retailers, each year STAPLES reviews their store base to determine whether to close stores that are under-performing, no longer meet their current prototype and/or require a relocation. To date, our disposition program has saved STAPLES over $106,000,000!

Excess Space was engaged by Walgreens in 1997 to assist with the disposition of the obsolete locations.
