    Growing New Haven's Economy | New Haven Press Releases


    (12/21/2011) The city’s retail business market is thriving this holiday season, with 36 new retail businesses opening their doors in the commercial districts since late last year, Mayor John DeStefano announced.

    More new stores opened in New Haven during that period than at any time in recent memory. The retail success is yet another sign of the strength of New Haven’s local economy, despite the difficult economy globally.

    “Business owners are being attracted by the city’s commitment to encouraging local entrepreneurs and national brands, and by the progress that is clearly evident all across the city,” said Kelly Murphy, New Haven’s Economic Development Administrator. “Even in a very challenging economy, these new businesses believe that New Haven is on the move, and they’re moving in to be part of it,” Murphy said.
