HARDWARE RETAILING | March 2017
few years ago, independent retailers asked your association for
alternatives to frequently used business services. The goal wasn't
necessarily to find the lowest price, but to partner with companies that
provide quality services. Here is an overview of the services that are available.
Group Health Insurance
NRHA offers a group health insurance program with a host of options. The plan
provides solid benefits at affordable rates and also offers vision, dental and life plan
options. For more information or to request a quote, go to cbigi.com/nrha-program

NRHA members can tap in to cutting-edge payment technologies and services,
including EMV chip card processing, ATMs and line-busting mobile checkout
with Payment Alliance International. To learn more, visit GoPAI.com/nrha or call
