All NFA members
The NFA was formed in 1991 by eight of the largest and most reputable independent floor covering retailers in America. Although there were other industry "buying groups” in business at that time, it was apparent that the larger and more sophisticated dealers of the NFA had needs that could not be fulfilled by the normal buying group structures in other organizations. NFA dealers, in most cases, were already savvy and well organized buyers, but it was obvious from the onset that manufacturers were willing to provide additional incentives to the NFA to influence purchasing in their direction by pooling each member’s buying volume together in an effort to provide rebates for the group. To this day, manufacturer rebates have been at the core of what drives the NFA, even as it's grown to its current membership of 42 dealers.
