The Old National Merchants Association (ONMA) is celebrating an exhilarating 25 years of leadership in promoting economic development along the Old National Highway (Georgia Highway 279) commercial corridor in south metro Atlanta.


With diverse programs and initiatives from Business Expos to beautification projects, the Association seeks to grow and sustain a vibrant corridor of some 500 friendly establishments: restaurants, hotels, florists, professional service providers, schools, specialty shops, places of worship, and more.


Collaboration and a can do spirit are our driving forces.


ONMA is a 501 (c) (3) organization.

Founded in 1989 with the assistance of then-Fulton County Commissioner Michael Hightower and with the support of a community enthusiastic about controlling its destiny, the Old National Merchants Association (ONMA) is one of metro Atlanta’s most dynamic business and economic development organizations.

ONMA has earned the sustained support of area businesses and residents, major corporations, civic organizations, and governments.

ONMA rallies to one overarching purpose: To create a healthy economic environment for merchants and the community. After 25 consecutive years of operations, ONMA continues to energetically embrace new challenges and opportunities—raising awareness of the potential and the responsibilities of doing business on Old National.
