What is the "Future of Retail?" Bookmark

Specify Alternate Text

The NRF – previously known as the National Retail Federation – describes itself as "the world's largest retail trade association."

And indeed, it has expanded well beyond a "national" focus. Its far-reaching international focus matches that of its large enterprise members.

The NRF also has described itself as "the voice of retail."

And these days, the NRF is giving voice for all retailers – as do we – to what's actually happening in the retail industry.

  • "The narrative that the industry is struggling, dying or even suffering a retail apocalypse inaccurately depicts what’s really happening.
  •  "While the headlines tell one story, the data shows the real facts."

And show the facts they do!

Check out this Future of Retail page on the NRF site.

And be sure to share that link with any and all doomsayers around you!
