Supporting the HFA =
Helping home furnishing retailers for over 100 years
For over 100 years, the Home Furnishings Association has been the heartbeat of this industry. Comprised of 1,500 home furnishings retailers in North America representing more than 10,000 storefronts, this association was founded by retailers that know they are stronger and better together.
Today, HFA is the leading trade organization that brings retail owners of all sizes together as a community to advocate, educate, and provide resources to thrive. This year has brought many new challenges. Retailers are leaning on the association more than ever as their most trusted and relied-upon resource to navigate difficult problems such as supply chain disruptions, hiring challenges, tariffs, and more.
- HFA’s COMMUNITY starts with a board of directors from 36 retailers representing small mom-and-pops to Top 100. They guide the direction of the association’s affairs and what is important to them. Through their leadership, smaller sub-communities such as CEO Summit (a large group of Top 100 C- Suite), CxO (the next generation of leaders), and the Government Relations Action Team shape and influence the industry.
- HFA’s ADVOCACY is the feet on the streets, communicating to local and federal governments on why retailers are essential, what financial support they need, working with Congress on tariffs, laws, and regulations that align with their business interests. When retailers are faced with laws that negatively impact their capital and ability to operate, HFA is their strong voice and advocate.
- HFA’s RESOURCES are unlike those of any other group. The individual concierge service is based on trust and finding out what is essential to the retailer and supporting them with unbiased direction. When retailers are looking for innovative solutions, POS systems, or a financial service, they have a trusted source that understands them and advises on the next best steps to help them achieve their goals.
- HFA’s EDUCATION meets retailers right where they are in their journey of becoming best-in-class. Retailers have an opportunity to work with and learn from other retailers on the most critical issues in demand and relevant for them – IN REAL TIME. The thought leadership retailers receive is the leading source of retailer education in the industry.
