Shopping centres charging for marketing when there is none? You betcha!

Marketing is an expensive part of outgoings charged by major centre landlords to its tenants.

Imaging how small business retailers feel about being charged through this COVID-19 situation with no marketing services being delivered.

What a scam! But, they will get away with it as they always do. They have deep pockets and good lawyers.

So yes, there are major landlords charging marketing fees with no services being provided whatsoever while at the same time not charging anything to big name retailers who closed their doors to sit out the lockdown.

It sucks and provides yet another example of the awfulness of being an indie retailer in an Australian shopping mall.

    The banks did that once and it took a Royal Commission to expose it. We where then promised by both sides a the last election that all 76 recommendations would be cast in law by June 2020 at the latest. Now the Government states it wont pass the law for at least another 6 months if ever because the strain on Banks from the Covid Virus.

    I wish all the best of luck with this. However to the Government Capital reins supreme and we will just how to accept their superior vision I guess.
