MEI is excited to announce the conclusion of 20 leased locations for the national retail tenant, Dollar Loan Center. The Phase 2 California expansion completion put the company at over 100+ locations nationwide. Leasing broker Chelsea Novelli worked in conjunction with Matt Crawford, President of Manhattan Commercial Group, to facilitate site prospecting and lease negotiations for all consummated transactions. The expansion began in late 2015 and recently concluded. In analyzing target markets, client provided demographic information, and product volume we were able to strategically locate finite markets for prospective retail locations. Dollar Loan Center expanded from the West Los Angeles, Long Beach and Orange County Markets to San Fernando Valley, San Gabriel Valley, and Riverside. Dollar Loan Center also opened several infill locations within close proximity to existing stores in high-demand areas. Site criteria included high visibility end-cap or pad spaces in anchored centers with national co-tenants and extreme traffic counts. The expansion was a success and as of late August, six locations are open for business with another fourteen opening soon.
