For retailers looking for storefront space for the first time, or small business owners growing out of their space, Truss is the fastest, smartest way to find retail space. Here's how it works:

Search & Explore

When you begin your search on Truss, you can pinpoint a few neighborhood options. We know location is so critical for retailers and this is a great feature to determine the monthly rent within your budget. You’ll answer a few personalized questions about your needs, and our real estate chatbot, Vera, will return search results meeting your criteria instantly. This allows you to quickly understand the cost of the neighborhood where there is a lot foot traffic to your retail storefront. The technology also matches the landlord’s intended use of space to your business, which means salons can find space specifically designed for salons immediately.

Compare & Save

Each retail space shows the all-in monthly rent, which means Truss is the first platform to provide this level of pricing transparency for tenants seeking retail space!  Plus, Truss provides virtual reality tours to give small businesses an idea of what the space looks like, allowing them to cut down on time spent searching for space they love. This allows you to easily compare your options before touring in person, filling out a spreadsheet, or waiting weeks for information from someone else. Speaking of costs, we receive a commission from the landlord when you sign the lease, and we share it back with you. So you can save money on your new storefront.

Lease Confidently

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the spaces, we can help! Our real estate experts know the retail market and can narrow the options.  We’ll then show you the space and help negotiate the terms before you sign the lease.

Whether you’re looking for a drive-up storefront for soccer moms, or walkable lunch spot for business meetings, Truss can provide a variety of retail options for you. Start your search today.
