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.
