About Us

Our Mission: Promote, foster, aid, advance and protect the interests of the retailers of goods and services doing business in New York State.

The Retail Council of New York State was incorporated in 1931 by a group of retailers looking to combine their interests and leverage their strengths to better support their businesses. Today, the Council is New York’s largest full-service, statewide retail trade association.

Headquartered in Albany, just one block from New York’s Capitol and legislative offices, the Council serves the needs of merchants, professionals and other providers of goods and services across the state. Our members range in size from sole proprietor businesses to national retail chains.
