Publix Announces It Will Waive Rent in Shopping Plazas it Owns

This will be huge to so many businesses, especially small businesses.

Publix will waive two months' rent as well as payments for common area maintenance fees and taxes, for plazas it owns throughout the Southeast USA.

This news comes as a huge relief to so many, as COVID-19 has been forcing many to close altogether or reduce their staff and hours.

“As a company that started as a small business 90 years ago, Publix wants to help businesses renting from us survive the economic impact of these unexpected closures,” spokeswoman, Maria Brous said in a statement released by Publix.
