Key Member Section Benefits

Network with other members: If you have a question you want input on from others in your line of work, the Members-Only Section gives you access to retailers by industry niche or geographic location. Send an email or call other members for private outreach or post your question in the new Forum for input from the membership at large. This is also a great tool to connect with other Council members in your geographic area who may be willing to co-promote with your store.

Post promotions for members and the general public: Let the Council become an extension of your marketing efforts! Use the member section to load promotions for other members and/or the general public. Those promotions you want the general public to see will be posted on the I Shop NY website at, the Council’s campaign to encourage consumers to shop in local stores before heading to a neighboring state, Canada or to an out-of-state Internet merchant.

Access Council webinars, newsletters, forms, links to resources, etc.: If you missed a webinar, want to refer back to an article you read in one of our newsletters, need a link to a Tax Department document or other paper or electronic resource, visit the member section for these and many other educational and business tools.

Post a classified ad: If you have used retail equipment, are looking to sell your business, need experienced employees or any other resource another retailer may have or know of, post a classified ad in the member section. It’s a free tool for members and directed to the prime audience – other retailers!
