The Scarsdale Business Alliance, a new nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting Scarsdale Village and its local businesses, held a meet and greet Oct. 25 at Rothmans of Scarsdale. More than 50 people attended. The SBA was created to foster cooperation and innovation in local businessess, and to work closely with village government to create a vibrant downtown.

Jane Veron, Scarsdale Village Trustee and SBA liaison said, “In a matter of a few months, the newly formed Scarsdale Business Alliance, with its professional executive director and topnotch board, has built a dynamic and high growth organization of dedicated merchants and service providers. The SBA is poised to make Scarsdale a preferred place for shopping, dining and gathering. With a laserlike focus on creating relevance for our local retail hubs, the SBA has big plans to bring events and value-added services to its consumers. The SBA has also forged strong ties with the village government and is already collaborating on a range of policy issues.”

Upcoming events include Light the ’Dale Friday, Nov. 30, from 5 to 7 p.m. in Boniface Circle and a holiday shopping event Thursday, Dec. 6 through Saturday, Dec. 8, featuring participating SBA merchants in Scarsdale Village, Golden Horseshoe, Five Corners and Colonial, with stores staying open until 8 p.m. Thursday.
