The eighth annual RIS News’ Rock & Roll Retail event gave weary NRF Big Show attendees an opportunity to wind down after a busy and stressful day on the show floor and hear some great tunes provided by their retail peers.
The event was once again held at the Hard Rock Café in Times Square on Monday, January 16, and featured three bands made up of retailers, analysts and solutions providers that thrilled the energized crowd.
Over 250 retail industry leaders were in attendance to network and watch their colleagues take to the stage and rock the house all night long with a set list of classics and modern hits.

In addition to the great atmosphere and music, all retailers in attendance were in the running to win one of two Fender Stratocaster guitars courtesy of Cybera. Congratulations to Nawras Said of Toys ‘R Us and Clark Linstone of Lamps Plus for taking home the coveted prizes.
