IRC Retail Centers’ total portfolio is primarily comprised of neighborhood, community and power shopping centers, and single-tenant retail assets. Our tenants are market-leading grocers and in-demand national, regional and local retailers providing everyday goods and services, as well as value-oriented retail.

Our team of experienced, dedicated professionals is guided by our “C.O.R.E.” mission – that is to “Create Outstanding Relationships and Experiences” with our tenants, shoppers, investors, joint venture partners, co-workers, and the communities in which we operate.
