The Large Format Retail sector employs 450,000 people and represents more than 25% of all retail sales.
Our members want to remain open for trade so we can support our local communities during this health crisis. They provide local communities with essential products and services.
Member’s stores are large, with carparks. Our customers and employees can drive to the front door, or close to stores.
We care about safety. Contactless transactions, social distancing and safety measures for both customers and employees is embraced.
One of the key attributes of LFRA is our collaborative culture and there is no better time than now to showcase the LFRA culture.
We are all in a world of pain right now. Every site and every relationship is different. Whether you are a retailer or a landlord, I urge all LFRA members to individually discuss their situation and work out individually a way forward.
We look forward to being advised of financial incentives on commercial leases from the Federal Government.

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.
Due to the impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic, in the interest of the health and safety of the LFRA members and guests, the LFRA will not be conducting our usual Forums or the Gala Awards Night.
