About Large Format Retail Association
The Large Format Retail Association (LFRA) is the national peak industry association for Australia’s Large Format Retail sector, otherwise known as ‘Big Box’ retail. The LFRA advocates for clarity, consistency and certainty of legislation and regulations that interface with the Large Format Retail sector particularly in the areas of planning, zoning, technological and environmental factors and initiatives.
Members of the LFRA comprise not only of Large Format retailers, but the owners, developers, investors and service suppliers of the sector. The breadth and depth of the LFRA’s membership enables it to advocate as a whole and united voice.
Over the last year we have had to adapt the way we work and communicate with our teams, our customers and each other. Once the state borders are open and there is a level of certainty that they remain open as well as workable mass gathering numbers we will be able to gather together in person again.
In 2021, we are pleased to continue the Webinar Series, more details will be released to LFRA members shortly. Click below to access the video of our first Webinar ‘In Conversation with Michael Schneider, Bunnings, Managing Director’.
