An owner of a chain of bookstores occupied a store in a mall. The bookstore owner’s lease for this store, from the landlord, the owners of the mall, provided him with 5,000 square feet of space. When the lease was about to expire, the bookstore owner devoted significant time and effort to find a suitable new site for his store. After months of negotiation, the bookstore was about to sign a lease on the new location he had found, when he received a phone call from the landlord. The landlord’s representative convinced the bookstore owner to stay on by stating, “We’ll give you a two-month option to renew your five-year lease.” The bookstore owner subsequently paid an architect $9,000 to redesign the store and included the mall’s address when preparing a $24,000 direct-mail campaign. With more than a week remaining on the option, the bookstore owner was notified by the landlord that they were revoking the option because the mall was to be demolished. The bookstore owner brought an action to compel the landlord to honor its option and the lease. Of the following arguments, which will be most persuasive in the landlord’s favor?CorrectIncorrect
