We stand up for retail
The National Retail Federation has represented retail for over a century. Every day, we passionately stand up for the people, policies and ideas that help retail thrive.
As the nation’s largest private-sector employer, retail contributes $3.9 trillion to the annual GDP. No other industry comes close.
Wherever the industry goes, the nation follows — so we’re committed to helping retail go further.
We educate and inspire
Together with our philanthropic arm, the NRF Foundation, we stand up for, celebrate, educate and inspire our industry.
We’re retail’s greatest advocates, uniting an industry of leaders and boundary breakers around complex issues and bold opportunities.
As the philanthropic arm of the National Retail Federation, the NRF Foundation builds the bridge between a growing industry with hundreds of thousands of open positions and job seekers around the country, through education, training, scholarships and experiences for job seekers of all ages and backgrounds.
