Presentation of City of YOU Business Champion Belt

Economic Development - March 13, 2020

The Economic Development Division awarded Star Supply with “City of You Business Spotlight.”

Located at 875 Mahoning Ave., Star Supply stocks household goods and overstock merchandise. Established in 1968, the business is the dream of the late Richard Rosenthal. Customers describe their visits to the iconic green building with bright yellow piping as an experience and consider it to be a great place to find unique items and things that you didn't even realize you may need.

As said by his wife Connie, "Richard created Star Supply 51 years ago and made it an iconic landmark on Mahoning Avenue. Star Supply gives us all a way to enjoy his colorful, fun, and creative legacy." Connie has taken the reins and is running Star Supply, with the help of his daughter Lisa.

The City of You Business Spotlight award was designed with the intent of bringing recognition to the many small business owners that choose to have a presence in the City of Youngstown. It celebrates businesses that exhibit pride in their presence within the City by investing in the aesthetic appearance of the well-maintained buildings that they occupy. The spirit of this award is also about recognizing businesses that have set themselves apart in some noteworthy way.
