Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are RMUs, kiosks, and inlines?
A: An RMU (Retail Merchandising Unit) is a freestanding unit provided by the shopping center, placed in high traffic locations in the common area. Products sold on RMUs have excellent visibility and are readily available to shoppers. Leased seasonally or year-round, this turnkey option allows retailers to open their businesses quickly, easily and with relatively low overhead expense.
A kiosk is a pre-approved freestanding unit placed in the common area. The unit is typically provided by the retailer. The cost of the unit is the retailer’s expense. Electricity is provided; voice and data lines are available. Retailers pay utility providers directly for these services. Steiner + Associates must approve kiosk design and schematics prior to fabrication and installation in the shopping mall.
An Inline temporary store is a short-term commitment in a pre-existing retail store space in the shopping center.
RMU's/ Kiosks: Electricity is provided; voice and data lines are available.
Inline Retailers: Would pay utility providers directly for these services.
Q: What is pop-up retail?
A: Pop-up retail is is an exciting, high-impact retail opportunity where a space in the mall is transformed into a unique venue for product sales or a one-of-a-kind brand experience. It is a great way to make a big impression with customers in our centers. Pop-up retail stores are ideal for product introductions, brand awareness campaigns and experiential marketing programs within particular events, seasons, markets, or specific shopping center locations.
Q: Are there visual requirements?
A: Businesses are required to meet our center's visual standards. In some cases, entrepreneurs or retailers are required to meet with our shopping center's visual merchandisers to create an approved visual plan. If a visual merchandiser is not available, we will work with you on your presentation, fixtures, props, etc. for an additional fee
Q: Are fixtures provided?
