Author: John Honovich, Published on Sep 27, 2009

The NRF has started its own blog, posting frequent updates. Very few of the updates are security related and none yet cover video surveillance. 

For those interested in general retail topics, it is quite well done with lots of posts and substantial details for most posts.
