Welcome to South Carolina Retail Association
The Voice of Retail in South Carolina!
The South Carolina Retail Association (SCRA) is a trade association whose mission is to improve the public image, effectiveness and profitability of the retail industry in the Palmetto state. We represent a variety of merchants in every county, both large and small, and make it our priority to give all retailers a voice in Columbia. A tax-exempt organization supported entirely by members’ dues, the Association is governed by a board of directors who represent retail entities as diverse as apparel, department, electronics, grocery and pharmacy stores.
SCRA’s multi‐year effort to strengthen the state’s shoplifting laws has finally come to a successful end! In a last‐minute deal, the conference report was adopted by the Senate (44‐0) and by the House (89‐0). The final conference report reinstates the “stolen goods” provision that the House stripped out of the original bill.
Thank you to the number of SCRA members that helped us to pass this priority legislation. Huge victory for SCRA!
