VRGA = Vermont Retail & Grocers Association

We are two associations (Vermont Grocers’ Association and Vermont Retail Association) who recently merged into one organization (Vermont Retail & Grocers Association) which is a single clearing-house of information and advocacy for retail related issues, ranging from the sales tax to employment and business regulations. Policy makers will recognize the new association as an even stronger statewide voice for retailers and grocers.  read more »
