The retail industry is undergoing unprecedented change

Dramatic shifts in customer shopping habits. Industry and pricing volatility. Ever-changing competitive threats both online and in-store. People challenges. 

It’s true – everyday you’re facing something new as an Independent retailer. A new problem to solve. A new fire to put out. Because what worked in years past won’t work for tomorrow.

And while there is no one better suited for the task than a resourceful, driven entrepreneur like yourself, there’s no denying the competitive advantage your business will have with a like-minded group of peers and industry experts in your corner – rooting and rallying for you, while connecting you with the partners and solutions you need to accelerate your success.

That’s exactly what you’ll experience as a Member of our buying, marketing and business support organization for the appliance, furniture, bedding, home decor, consumer electronics, computer, photography, floor covering and outdoor industries.
