The Neighborhood Retail Alliance has been fighting for the
rights of small businesses in New York City for the past
twenty years. We have successfully taken on some of
the city’s largest real estate developers as well as some of
the country’s largest retailers in the effort to prevent the
erosion of New York’s neighborhood economy.
> About Us
The entry of Wal-Mart into New York City is the biggest
challenge to neighborhood businesses and local communities
in our city’s history. We have seen Wal-Mart’s impact
all over the country. Where Wal-Mart builds, downtown
business districts erode and often die. The loss of
small business is the first step in the decline of
neighborhoods and the loss of local identity.
Campaign Against Wal-Mart
We need each and every one of you to join with us in our
campaign. Sign up as a stakeholder and we will apprise
you, either directly or through your business association,

and what you can do personally to help in the effort.
