It represents the interests of over 1,400 independent retail members throughout the Province, with members in every village, town and city in Northern Ireland. The membership includes wholesalers, independent retailers of all kinds, and suppliers to the sector.
Member stores are generally owned and managed by local families rather than large multi-national companies with shareholders, meaning that member stores are absolutely vital in providing local employment as well as a strong focal point within the local community. For details see www.niirta.com
