A shopping property management firm is a company that specializes in owning and managing shopping malls. Most shopping property management firms own at least 20 malls. Some firms use a similar naming scheme for most of their malls; for example, Mills Corporation puts “Mills” in most of their mall names and SM Prime Holdings of the Philippines puts “SM” in all of their malls, as well as anchor stores such as SM Department Store, SM Appliance Center, SM Hypermarket, SM Cinema, and SM Supermarket. In the UK, The Mall Fund changes the name of any centre they buy to “The Mall (location)”, using their pink-M logo; when they sell a mall it reverts to its own name and branding, such as the Ashley Centre in Epsom.
