Welcome to the North Carolina Retail Merchants Association

We’re glad you chose to visit our website. The North Carolina Retail Merchants Association (NCRMA) is the leading advocate and business resource dedicated to promoting a positive legislative and regulatory environment for the retail industry – enhancing members’ opportunities for success. We are the expert on NC retail laws.

NCRMA is the only retail trade group in NC that is focused exclusively on helping retail companies – large and small – to operate a successful retail store! We invite you to learn more about who we are.



US Congress returned to Washington the first week of December, leaving roughly two weeks to achieve the goal of passing e-fairness legislation that would benefit brick-and-mortar retailers doing business in NC.  Linked below is an ad telling the story of why e-fairness legislation matters!  Click and share!

Retail is about more than providing consumers with great products. In 2013, the National Retail Federation launched This is Retail to highlight the industry’s opportunities for life-long careers, how retailers strengthen communities, and the critical role that retail plays in driving innovation.
