Your story meets legislators at the Minnesota Retailers Association's Retail Day at the Capitol.
Our program for 2022 offers a chance to hear from and interact with key legislators on issues impacting Minnesota's retailers, consumers and workers. In addition, we are offering optional visits with legislators from your district.
Due to COVID restrictions at the State Capitol this year's event will be conducted via Zoom with the option for virtual or in-person visits with legislators.
With one in four jobs in Minnesota directly connected to retail, our elected officials now more than ever need to understand the impact of their decisions on retail businesses.
