What To Look For When Buying An AutoZone

If AutoZone Vacates, How Do I Re-Tenant The Building?

Dollar Stores such as Dollar General, Family Dollar, and Dollar Tree often backfill old vacant auto parts buildings. Medical uses such as Davita Dialysis and Fresenius have also taken over this footprint. Like any investment in the triple net sector, you must do your research on how strong the intrinsics of the real estate are. Not all AutoZone’s will be located in dense retail corridors.
