English term or phrase: anchor store
Definition from About.com:
A major retail store used to drive business to smaller retailers. These larger department stores or grocery stores are generally part of a retail chain and are the prominent business in a shopping mall.

Example sentence(s):
  • The presence of an anchor store can entice consumers to visit the shopping center or mall, and possible continue to shop at the smaller stores in the complex after visiting the anchor store. wiseGEEK
  • Conventional wisdom holds that a mall requires at least two anchor stores to be successful, and in the standard linear, bipolar mall design, one of these stores will be located at each end, so that shoppers traveling from one to the other will traverse the entire length of the mall, passing by the rest of the stores found within. everything2.com
  • An in-depth review of West London undertaken earlier this year identified an untapped opportunity in West London. We have therefore agreed terms to secure an anchor store at The White City Development. FashionUnited

Explanation:
"Ankergeschäft" und "Ankermieter" werden häufig als Synonyme verwendet.

Im Englischen findet sich darüber hinaus das Synonym "magnet store" - vgl. http://www.irs.gov/businesses/article/0,,id=171046,00.html ("Anchor (Magnet) store: An anchor magnet store is typically a larger retail department store whose presence in an enclosed shopping mall or an upscale strip center draws customers not only to the anchor store itself, but also to the more numerous and higher-rent paying interior tenants.").
