Glimcher Realty Trust (NYSEGRT) is a Columbus, Ohio based real estate investment trust.[1] The company specializes in the development and management of regional malls and shopping centers.[2] As of 2009, the company's properties consisted of 23 malls (with a total leasable area of 20.74 million square feet), and three community centers (with a total leasable area of 760 thousand square feet). On 2008-10-23, Glimcher Realty Trust posted a third quarter loss of US$3.44 million.[3] On the same day, Standard & Poor's lowered Glimcher's credit rating, in response to a declining outlook for the trust's portfolio.[4]

In 2004, it sold several properties to Bromont Investments, a company based in Scottsdale, Arizona.[5]

In early 2006, it acquired one mall in partnership with a Canadian pension fund and another one by itself.[6]

In September 2014, Simon Property Group's Washington Prime Group announced to acquire Glimcher Realty Trust in which the companies will merge to become "WP Glimcher" when the deal is made by early 2015. [7] As part of the deal, Jersey Gardens and University Park Village were sold to Simon.
