CBL & Associates Properties: Everything Investors Need to Know PART 4 OF 14

What Companies are CBL & Associates’ Top Tenants?

Types of tenants

As a strategy, most retail malls have two types of tenants—anchor tenants and inline tenants. Anchor tenants are the key tenants with large stores and big names in the business. They attract other smaller tenants and customers to the mall. Inline tenants are small tenants. They benefit from the footfall that anchor tenants draw to the mall. Anchor tenants enter longer-term leases and pay lower rent than inline tenants.
