Meridian Plaza launches tenant referral program
Bellingham, Wash. Mall owner Hackman Capital Partners said Wednesday that its Meridian Plaza has launched a new Tenant Referral Program, a refer-lease-and-earn campaign that promises $2,500 cash for each referral that results in a three-year lease at the newly renovated retail center located in Bellingham, Wash.
The new Meridian Plaza Tenant Referral Program was designed to complement an existing sister program geared to area real estate brokers. The broker program offers leasing bonuses, also $2,500, for each referral that results in a three-year lease, plus $50 bonuses for each property showing.
A recent makeover to the center, which totaled nearly a half-million dollars, included a new brick and stucco facade, newly designed storefronts with canopies and fabric awnings, a newly resurfaced and restriped parking lot with wheel stops, sidewalks with new concrete benches, new monument signage, lighting, painting and other improvements.
The current tenant roster includes Rent-A-Center, Red Wing Shoes, Maly’s, Better Nails, Hair 4 You, Thai House Restaurant — and two free-standing restaurant sites, occupied by Burger King and Denny’s Restaurant.
