MORE ABOUT MARLS NYC

MARLS NYC, formerly known as the Merchant Association of Rosedale Laurelton & Springfield Gardens, NY, was founded in 2016 by 6 concerned business owners, who saw the great challenges Black Merchants were experiencing in order to keep their doors open. Much of the challenge was a result of a lack of effective business operations, difficulty accessing capital, gaining and retaining loyal clients and getting certified for and winning contracts.

Today, MARLS NYC has not only evolved to equip and empower Black merchants in the initial three local cities; but have extended same vetting service and handholding assistance to Black and Brown business owners in Boroughs of NYC. Our handholding service is available evening and weekends; to support the merchants that cannot close during business hours to attend
business education and assistance services.
