7 Louisiana Retailers Association - Baton Rouge












"We're working hard to offer
a solid blend of products and
services that give bottom-line
savings to retailers."

Dawn Johnson
Executive Director


The Louisiana Retailers Association is the heart of Louisiana's community retail industry. Since 1946, the LRA has been instrumental in influencing legislative change, providing invaluable resources to Louisiana's retail industry. In other words, we pass laws that support retailers statewide, and we work to defeat any laws that are detrimental to the retail industry.

The LRA is your vital link to the state government. Our purpose, simply, is to strengthen, support and advance the ever-evolving needs of our members. The LRA celebrates free enterprise, but observes and protects the interests of all Louisiana retailers, big and small.
