Welcome. We're here for you.

Return to in person shopping and revisit the unique shopping experience that North Carolina retailers bring—the attentive staff, unparalleled hospitality, and the specialty products. Not only will you be reminded of the joy of the in person experience, you’ll also be bolstering the livelihood of our communities.

North Carolina’s retailers’ commitment to their local communities is strong and deep. ShopNC showcases the unique experiences shoppers can only get in stores across the state. It reminds shoppers that retailers are here for their customers – and provides an opportunity to demonstrate the support retailers provide to their communities and to their customers, inside and outside of the retail environment.

Welcome. We're here for you.

Shoppers and retailers, we want to see your in-store shopping experiences! Simply share a photo of your shopping experience. We’d love to see pictures from your last trip to your favorite store, inside shots of the boutique you opened in your town, or a snapshot of you with the best sales associate you have ever met. We’ll feature submissions as they come in. Feel free to tag us in your posts on social media. Just add #ShopNC to your caption!


“What I’ve seen happen as a member of NCRMA is bigger than which way you vote (on having one voice for the retail industry (both chain and independent). I’ve seen communities become more reliant on each other, supportive of each other’s livelihoods, trying to take care of our families. North Carolina is a great place to be a business owner, and NCRMA is going to keep it that way.”

Joe O'Keefe

“Our staff works every day to ensure that North Carolina is a great place to operate a retail business. We’re here to listen, to help and to make the voice of retailers heard. I invite you to join NCRMA and support the one group in North Carolina that represents retailers – both large and small.”

Andy Ellen, President and General Counsel

“The North Carolina Retail Merchants Association provides great support to Walmart and helps us better  understand the issues that impact our business. We have found the NCRMA to be a professional and well managed organization that delivers exceptional service to its members. It offers true value to us and all retail in North Carolina.”
