Information Services


The Council publishes its newsletter, New York State Retailer, four times a year. This useful guide is filled with industry changes that affect your business, updates on Council programs/services, and relevant happenings at the state Capitol.

The Council also produces an e-newsletter, the Retail Link. This quick and easy-to-read publication provides industry insights, up-to-the minute information on our advocacy efforts before state government, and updates on our money-saving services.



The Council encourages members to call with any questions they may have about laws or other aspects to running a business in the Empire State. We’re often able to provide an answer…and when we’re not, we can usually point members to another resource.

To support our workers’ compensation insurance, statutory disability insurance, and credit card processing programs, we have experts on staff to answer questions and resolve problems.

“You’re there in a pinch,” one complimentary member said recently of the Council’s information services.
