Laurens, S.C. – Transwestern’s Chicago office today announced it brokered the sale of a net-leased Rite Aid Drug Store property located at 501 N. Harper St. in Laurens, S.C. Rite Aid has six and a half years remaining on a 20-year lease term. The freestanding 10,908-square-foot building, situated on a 1.37-acre land parcel, was purchased for $2.3 million.
 
“This was a difficult sale due to the short lease term and tertiary market,” said Marc Imrem, managing director of Transwestern. “But we found a strong buyer that was able to leverage its relationship with the tenant in order to get comfortable and close the transaction.”

The seller, a private investor, was exclusively represented by Imrem. Andrew Watson, managing director at Transwestern, represented the buyer, a private investor group based in Texas.
