Lifting Others – NewMark Merrill Companies Community Support

We’re Committed to our Community

NewMark Merrill Companies, Inc. is committed to supporting our communities, merchants and customers during the COVID-19 global pandemic. We are working hard to keep our shopping center clean and open so our customers can shop at essential businesses like our grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants and many other tenants still open for business today.

We are monitoring all notices, updates, and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and federal, state and local agencies on how we can help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and protect our employees, customers and partners at this time.

Everyone has been affected during these challenging times and Southgate Plaza is committed more than ever to remaining a central part of our communities. We are working to create a stronger community, by providing frequent communication on our operating tenants and letters from our president and CEO.
