“Major retailers are drawn to our FedEx locations, so they can get their goods delivered to their customers as fast as possible. We are very pleased to add this large, brand-new FedEx Ground facility to our growing property portfolio.”
MREIC has multiple FedEx locations, as well as locations occupied by major brands, such as Kellogg’s, Anheuser-Busch and Coca-Cola.
