What is the NFRN?BlogtrottrRSS

The National Federation of Retail Newsagents (NFRN) was founded in 1919 and is one of Europe’s largest employers’ associations with over 15,000 independent news and convenience retailers in membership throughout the UK and Ireland.

Even though our roots go back to 1893, the first recorded national meeting was in Leicester, in 1919.

We exist to help the independent retailer compete more effectively in today’s highly competitive market by providing practical help and assistance, commercial support, deals and buying opportunities, training, expertise and services.

The NFRN also actively represents its members' interests at governmental and parliamentary level and within the news and magazine industry. We are the official government referral body for the sector and are a powerful voice for the independent retailer.

Our Motto

"Where’er one man can help another, thank God for such a birthright, brother." J. Russell Lowell
