New Hampshire Business Newsreel
BOW — The Retail Merchants Association of New Hampshire has a new name — the New Hampshire Retail Association — along with a new office and a new logo.
"In 2016, we'll be celebrating our 50th anniversary," said Nancy Kyle, president and CEO of the organization. "In preparation for that, our board of directors voted to update our image and rebrand ourselves. We've dropped the word 'merchants' from our name, and are very excited about our new, more modern logo."
"That was merely an issue of functionality," said Office Manger Amanda Holden, explaining that the Concord location was larger than what the organization needed, the lease was up, and a better location became available.
The Business and Industry Association of New Hampshire is hosting U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte on Friday for a briefing with business leaders.
