About this event

Join us for this online STRIVE Series!

Many retailers approach finding a bricks and mortar space backwards. They fall in love with a space, then work to shoehorn their new or growing business into it. But this can be problematic at best and detrimental at worst.

In this presentation, Pedal founders Abby Davids and Sheila Tarasiuk explain how to search for your space like a pro. Topics covered include:

  • How do I know what I need in a space?
  • Do I need a broker and what will she do?
  • What’s the real purpose of space tours, and how can I prepare?
  • How do I narrow down my options?
  • Why is rent the LAST piece of the puzzle to consider?

About Pedal Retail Advisors:

Abby Davids and Sheila Laderberg Tarasiuk co-founded Pedal Retail Advisors in 2020.

The duo first met when Abby was leasing commercial real estate and Sheila was searching for retail space for a growing chain of coffee shops. While they didn’t end up doing a deal together, their mutual admiration for each others’ hustle and smarts planted seeds for the future.

Fast forward to a global pandemic, when Abby and Sheila were independently building their own businesses dedicated to first-time retailers, who so often get badly burned by the first few deals they sign. They quickly realized that they were both dedicated to solving this same problem, just from slightly different perspectives — Abby as a broker and Sheila as a business consultant.

Abby and Sheila represent a unique blend of synergistic complements, and their dual-lens approach reflects the reality of bricks-and-mortar retailers — that the space and the business are one and the same.

Together, they’ve defined a new standard of service for retailers – designed for business owners to feel confident, supported and ready for their bricks-and-mortar space.
