What is NRF?
NRF is the world’s largest retail trade association, representing discount and department stores, home goods and specialty stores, merchants, grocers, wholesalers, chain restaurants and internet retailers from the United States and more than 45 other countries. Retail is the largest private sector employer, supporting one in four US jobs – 42 million working Americans. Contributing $2.6 trillion to annual GDP.
Technological, cultural and economic changes have shifted the balance of power to online retailers but bricks and mortar stores are innovating at a rapid pace while dealing with issues of Fraud, EMV Transition and Omni-channel experience. By contrast online retailers face significant hurdles complying with EU GDPR rules if they want to do business in Europe.
