Join Michigan Retailers Association

Whether it’s kayaking a river, climbing a mountain or running a business, you’ll do better with an expert along. Michigan Retailers Association is your business expert.

For more than 74 years, MRA has served as a trusted business resource for thousands of businesses, growing to become the nation’s largest state trade association of general merchandise retailers and other small businesses (you don’t need to be a retailer to join MRA and take advantage of our business services).

By aggregating the purchasing power of nearly 5,000 member businesses and their more than 15,000 stores and websites, MRA is able to negotiate better prices and rates on a wide range of business services — everything from “no hidden fees” expert credit card processing to Retailers Insurance Company workers' comp and dental insurances to discounts on the natural gas you use in your business and home.

Why would you go it alone when you can have the strength of MRA watching your back and helping you increase your bottom line?

How much does it cost to belong? The better question is: How much does it pay you to belong? The amount you’ll save from being a member of MRA should far exceed your $130 annual dues investment*.

We can say that because our studies show members save an average of 16 percent when processing credit cards with MRA, they save 25 percent on shipping costs, and they save 7-12 percent on natural gas.
