Richmond Road Merchants Association is Formed to Help Struggling Commercial Stretch

Posted by on Tuesday, April 21st, 2015 at 12:14pm

A new merchants association has been launched to help improve more than 75 businesses within a mile stretch of Richmond Road in the areas of Grant City and Dongan Hills.

The Richmond Road Merchants Association is being jumpstarted by Councilman Steven Matteo contributing $25,000 and another $10,000 from Borough President James Oddo. This marks the fourth merchants group Matteo has started in his district.

The New Dorp Merchants Group, Victory Boulevard Merchants Association, and Midland Avenue Merchants Association have each been deemed great successes by Oddo. "This commercial strip includes a variety of small businesses who add character to our community," said Oddo, referring to Richmond Road. "Good things happen when small business owners get together and fight for common benefits," he added.
