We represent over 28,000 shopfronts across Australia and New Zealand, making us the one of the most powerful voices for Australian businesses. Our policy team works hard to bring retailers together in a non-competitive environment and provide a platform to have your voice heard.

We tackle the issues you can’t tackle alone.

 

How we represent your interests

Business Operations & Risks

From everyday business risks through to wider industry issues, our policy team supports and works closely with members to drive change in all areas of retail.

We use in-house and external resources to stay actively involved in issues that matter to retailers.

Committees

We coordinate a number of important industry committees. These committees facilitate vital discussions and offer retailers the opportunity to contribute to retail industry policy.
