The Retail Council of New York State was incorporated in 1931 by a group of retailers who came together to support their industry. Today, the Retail Council is New York’s largest statewide association of its kind.
Headquartered in Albany, just one block from the Capitol, the Retail Council is a full-service trade organization with extensive experience in government and media relations. As the exclusive voice of retail in New York, we are a trusted resource for business owners to stay informed on issues essential to the industry. We provide members with the tools and support they need to operate efficiently.
The Retail Council of New York State promotes, advances and protects the interests of retailers throughout the state, with a focus on government relations, education, public relations and other matters related to retail businesses and consumers.
