Our Philosophy

Ohio Council of Retail Merchants – Supporting you in Ohio’s Statehouse and beyond

The Ohio Council of Retail Merchants is your voice at the Ohio Statehouse. Our highly skilled professionals have deep experience in government affairs. And as an association, we have fought for Ohio’s retail industry for 90-years.

Our philosophy when it comes to government affairs is quite simple – ensure a positive business environment for Ohio’s retail, wholesale and distribution industries. Supporting this philosophy takes hard work, deep relationships and steadfast attention to local, state and national policy.

The Council has successfully supported our members through a number of recent policy initiatives, including shoplifting legislation, the Consumer Sales Practices Act, unemployment policies, consumer choice initiatives and much more.

In addition, the Council maintains close relationships with local and county chambers of commerce to ensure local policies favor retailers. Lastly, the Council provides small claims consultation to members that require support in your judicial system.

All-in-all, the Ohio Council of Retail Merchants seeks to fulfill its goal of protecting the rights for our members at every level of government.
