Associations & organizations
The Shelfspace story began nearly a century ago (as Retail Merchants Association of B.C. and Retail Merchants Association of Alberta also known as Retail B.C. and Retail Alberta) meeting the needs of a select group of professional retailers. Over the years, the association has become stronger and expanded to serve those with an entrepreneurial spirit and passion for retail.
Founded in 1963, Retail Council of Canada is the Voice of Retail. RCC is a not-for-profit association whose more than 9,000 members represent all retail formats including national and regional department stores, mass merchants, specialty chains, independent stores and online merchants.
