Who We Are


Atlanta Retailers Association is a not-for-profit organization comprised of individuals who came together as a result of sharing a common faith and owning or operating convenience stores within the state of Georgia. From humble beginnings in 1995, today ARA has grown to an Association of over 950 retail stores stretching across Georgia, primarily in the Atlanta area. Atlanta Retailers Association is governed by its By-Laws and managed by the Board of Directors, voluntary members of the Association who are elected by the members for their expertise and strong potential in sustaining and growing the organization ethically and for the greater benefit of its members. Most importantly, ARA takes great pride in the continuous charitable efforts put forth by our members and directors, as it is a true testament of our loyalty and dedication to empowering our Atlanta community.
