The representation and sale of retail businesses has been a common occurrence at IBA for approximately 45 years. Our past transactions in this niche have ranged from regional store chains to single location businesses ranging in size from 25,000 square feet to inline mall kiosks. We have sold retailers in small communities with limited competition and large metropolitan cities where  competition exists around the corner.  We have sold retail businesses that generate a majority of their revenue from transactions completed at a brick & mortar location and retail businesses that sell products out of both a physical location and from an E-Commerce website.

This legacy of completed transactions was established by IBA because our professionals have the transactional experience and market knowledge required to properly evaluate, market, and negotiate the sale of retail businesses whether they exist on main street or the Internet.

The following are some specific examples of retail businesses sold by IBA:
