As the world’s largest retail trade association and the voice of retail worldwide, NRF represents retailers of all types and sizes from the United States and more than 45 countries abroad including department stores, specialty, apparel, discount, online, independent, grocery and chain restaurants.

Retailers operate more than 3.5 million U.S. establishments that support one in four U.S. jobs – 42 million working Americans.

Contributing $2.5 trillion to annual GDP, retail is a daily barometer for the nation’s economy.
