Retail Services - Cushman & Wakefield

Retail Services

We Are The Center of Retail 

Around the corner and across the world, Cushman & Wakefield is the center of retail. Our 1,400-member global team has the expertise, experience, and resources to provide comprehensive, integrated, and innovative real estate services to retail occupiers, landlords and investors, regardless of the size, scope or location of the assignment. From urban high streets to suburban centers, retail parks, and factory outlets, Cushman & Wakefield retail specialists leverage industry experience and a global perspective to market properties, align brands to opportunities, and provide clients with intelligence for smart decision making.

For retail occupiers, Cushman & Wakefield utilizes a data-driven, analytical approach to understand the unique relationship that a client’s brand has with customers—and how the right timing and real estate strategy can elevate that relationship. Whether addressing a request for a single unit or an entire market entry plan for leading retailers to new concept start-ups, our experts work with clients to define their specific retail requirements. We act as strategic advisors to secure locations that align real estate with business objectives and reach the target customer at terms that set the stage for future success.

For retail owners and investors, we understand the nuances and complexities of all property types, from urban high street to super regional malls, — and use this knowledge to serve as a long-term partner to our clients. Our retail specialists and researchers constantly analyze and engage their local markets, offering clients insight into current conditions, hidden opportunities, and trends. Leasing professionals create innovative property marketing campaigns that attract and retain tenants. Capital markets experts craft techniques for maximizing the returns of a single asset or portfolio, the placement of debt and equity, and financing strategies. Through the full-service resources of the Cushman & Wakefield organization, clients also have the opportunity to solve for added needs involving property and asset management, project development services, valuation and advisory, and facility services.

newCommerce: The New Way We Do Business


Seamless, full-service solutions for today’s ever-evolving retail landscape.

Cushman & Wakefield’s newCommerce service is the business and thought leadership collaboration connecting our Retail Services platform with our Logistics, Industrial, and eCommerce expertise.

This connection is being driven by the advancement of omni-channel shopping, technology, bricks-and-mortar experiential retail, and the need for coordinated supply chain functions. Cushman & Wakefield aims to broaden the reach and change the paradigm for retailers, advising on what is changing in these sectors, and on how retailers can maintain success and grow into the future.
