NRF, RILA decide not to merge

Washington – The National Retail Association and the Retail Industry Leaders Association announced today they have ended their merger discussions.

 “Following a deliberative process, RILA and NRF have ended discussions aimed at merging the two organizations. NRF and RILA will devote all resources to continuing the work they are each doing to address the serious issues that America’s consumers and retailers are facing in today’s economic environment,” said the two boards of directors in a joint statement.

The trade associations did not reveal what led to the decision. The merger was announced two months ago.
