When my husband and I took over Peter Baker-Finch in 1999 the company was already a member of the National Retail Association (NRA). There was never any question of not continuing the membership, as in our early days of running the store, NRA proved to be an extremely helpful resource.
NRA provides me with updates pertinent to running a retail business and have helped me navigate the changes within the industry.
NRA offers a diverse range of services and are willing to share their wealth of knowledge to avoid others encountering similar issues which makes it stand out from other organisations. In my experience the team have been very helpful and quick to respond. If they come across a situation beyond their expertise they very quickly provide contact to the appropriate entity.
Peter Baker-Finch has used many of the NRA’s services such as the legal hotline, member’s portal resources, workshops and even have two current staff members found through the Ready for Ready course offered to jobseekers. They have been employed by my company for over 8 years.
In my opinion NRA is a necessary membership to have if you wish to run your business effectively and I highly recommend becoming a member.
