Small Business Retail Council (Invite-only)

Join our small business retailer network

The Small Business Retail Council brings together small retailers to amplify their voice on the local, state and national level. Members have the opportunity to identify and collaborate on policy priorities concerning small retail businesses in the United States and propose strategies and solutions on those priorities and challenges.

This council encourages members to actively participate in the coordination of retail grassroots advocacy and provide input on NRF’s small business programs for Main Street retailers.
