The State of Retailing Online

NRF is the world’s largest retail trade association. Every day, we stand up for, celebrate, educate and inspire the people who power the retail industry. 

We champion the people and policies that fuel success for retailers, the jobs they create and the lives they impact.

Help us get more women running retail and tech into the boardroom.
