Show "retail means jobs," win cash

WASHINGTON — The National Retail Federation is calling on all retail employees or business owners to show the United States that "retail means jobs." The group has launched its "This is Retail" video contest to help promote the role retail plays in the U.S. economy.

Retail employees or business owners can submit a two-minute video sharing their retail story; winners of the contest will be awarded $50,000.

"We're on a hunt to find the best retail stories in America — from marketing geniuses to customer service superstars to small business owners, who are the fabric of every local community,” NRF president and CEO Matthew Shay said. “NRF's 'This is Retail' contest will put a face on an industry that is seamlessly woven into the fabric of America and influences every aspect of our life and culture — from commerce and fashion to real estate and public policy.”
