Founded in 1919, we are one of Europe’s largest employers’ associations with over 15,000 independent retail members throughout the UK and Ireland.
We provide practical help and assistance, commercial support, deals and buying opportunities, training, expertise and services.
We are a powerful voice for the independent retailer, actively representing our members’ interests at governmental and parliamentary levels as the oﬃcial government referral body for the sector.
For over a decade, NFRN Direct members have been provided with a great package of beneﬁts, with hundreds of suppliers in the scheme, covering a wide range of diﬀerent products, nationally negotiated terms, centralised billing and longer credit terms.
For many members the greatest attraction is the access they get to products, prices and credit rates that are far better than any that they could hope to negotiate on an individual basis.
