Looking for small biz space to lease...30k

So I have a small biz and looking into spaces for lease I thought for the heck of it I would call up Oshawa centre , did you know they charge $60/sq ft? Plus commissions, so For a small 500 square ft space it’s 30k/ month plus comm. my question is how do any of these smaller businesses actually make money after paying the insane mall rent?

hahahahha yep.
Seems that way for sure.

But isn't Oshawa center the only "spot" in Oshawa? I'm assuming it gets A LOT of traffic evenings and weekends. I think that they probably don't want you there if you can't make $100k in revenue a month. Your success is their success. They want the Oshawa center as a place people want to go and spend money..
