The mission of the Kansas Retail Council – or KRC – is to provide knowledge, resources, and support to Kansas retailers so they can prosper.
KRC focuses on retail business issues that impact small and large retailers in Kansas. Through the Kansas Chamber, the KRC promotes doing business in Kansas and is a liaison to the National Retail Federation as well as other state retail associations, and gives Kansas retailers a strong, unified voice on legislative and public policy matters.
KRC is made up of Kansas retailers and affiliated businesses who are members of the Kansas Chamber. You or your company must be a member of the Kansas Chamber to join the KRC.
The KRC is an advocate for Kansas Retailers on Taxation, Employment Law and Regulatory Affairs. Here’s how:
The Kansas Chamber is the state affiliate for the National Retail Federation (NRF).
As the state affiliate we know the importance of sharing pressing information and issues and having your voice heard.

How consumers shop has shifted, putting a much heavier focus on shopping online – safely at home. Why not support local Kansas businesses while you do it? KRC has compiled a list of Kansas retail online stores to help support local business.
Click below to view the list of local retailers by city. This page will continue to grow and improve and we encourage you to tell other retailers so they can upload their store information as well. Retailers in our online shopping page do not have to be members of the Kansas Chamber.
If you are interested in listing your company on this list, fill out this form. We are excited to support Kansas businesses and until we can safely do that in-person, we will shop online!
