It would depend on the type of Anchor tenant you have? If you could be specific I may be able to answer your questions better. Also where is this property located?

In general - yes. The level of sales required before the % kicks in might be "up there" but it is certainly a practice that exists for many anchor stores to pay a % of sale about a certain level. The CAM is to be paid regardless to cover / offset the costs of what CAM is all about.

Yes. CAM charges plus a percentage of sales against a fixed or natural breakpoint is common for an anchor tenant. As with all leases, however, these are terms that are negotiated and will vary depending on the retailer and other economic terms so make sure you have good representation.

Two seperate components of income
Percentage rent is RENT.
CAM is expense reimbursement.
Their lease should clearly define both.
