Small business owner and retailer Hillary Feder, owner of Hillary’s, has been recognized by the National Retail Federation for her contribution to advocacy as a 2016 America’s Retail Champion of the Year finalist. Recognized for her work in engaging elected officials on issues important to consumers, retailers, employees, and communities Feder traveled to Washington, DC to take part in the NRF’s Retail Advocates Summit. Joining Feder on the trip were several representatives from the Minnesota Retailers Association.
The America’s Retail Champions program honors retailers who make their mark on public policy debates directly affecting the industry. More than 100 retailers across the nation, from online sellers to mid-size and small retail store owners, were nominated by state retail associations, small business retailers and their peers based on their engagement in public policy discussions on issues ranging from patent reform and online sales tax to data security and labor policy.
National Retail Federation (NRF) is the world’s largest retail trade association, representing discount and department stores, home goods and specialty stores, Main Street merchants, grocers, wholesalers, chain restaurants and Internet retailers from the United States and more than 45 countries.
