Who are they
Retra is the UK’s leading trade association for independent electrical retailers and servicing organisations.
They represent member’s views and interests at a national level, maintaining dialogue with manufacturers, Government and other key organisations in supporting our member’s needs.
Formed in 1942, for the benefit of Independent Electrical Retailers, we represent more than 1,100 members, operating from over 1,600 outlets in the UK today.
Members include domestic electrical retailers, service engineers, custom installers, computer stores and electronic music shops. They provide members with a range of benefits, industry information and business advice.
Originally known as the Radio & Television Retailers Association(RTRA), the Retra came into being following the merger of The Register of Radio and Television Retailers Ltd, the Wireless Retailers Association, the National Association of Radio Retailers and the Music & Radio Distributors Association with an agreed goal to represent the interests of retailers.
These enthusiastic dealers formed to create the first RTRA Council under the Chairmanship of Mr J.H.S Smith, convinced that the agreement to have one national body would safeguard the future of radio retailers. Today Retra is still supported by a Council which continues to be made up of representatives of the Radio, Electrical and Television Retail industry.
Retra is the reliable and respected voice of electrical retailing. They provide the best quality services by providing top rate industry services and representing Trafalgar Electronics interests.
