RDRC Welcomes New Businesses
Beach 20 Street seems to be the place to do business if you’re a retailer. Businesses locating on Beach 20 Street qualify for Empire Zone benefits, among various other programs.
Small businesses are relocating to the Rockaways in order to tap into the wonderful benefits offered by the city and state, says Tony Berkel, Director of Business and Professional Services at RDRC.
RDRC, which acts as the conduit for the Rockaway East, Merchants Association (REMA) is also growing because of the new businesses.
Bridal Creations, owned and operated by Ms. La Vida had a grand opening on July 4. Bridal Creations expects to join REMA.
The merchant group is an organization that not only promotes a business friendly relationship among members, but also fosters economic growth in the commercial corridor, says Berkel.
