 NRF ANNOUNCES 'NO FEE' POLICY FOR JOINING SPECNET
 TELECOMMUNICATIONS PROGRAM
 NEW YORK, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Retail Federation (NRF), the nation's largest retail trade association, moved today to make its SpecNet telecommunications services more affordable to small businesses by eliminating the enrollment fee.
 The announcement was made by Jack Schultz, NRF president.
 The SpecNet program provides long-distance telecommunications services through MCI Communications to over 80 NRF members who shared in a total savings of over $5.5 million to date.
 In addition to long distance telecommunications services, a shared data communications network and credit authorization system will soon be made available to SpecNet members. Other projects including group purchasing of equipment, group maintenance, and fully-interactive networks are currently being evaluated by NRF for implementation in the SpecNet program within the next few months.
 According to Jack Schultz, NRF president, "By eliminating the enrollment fee, SpecNet becomes more affordable for the small business and, therefore, makes this cost-saving program available to a greater number of NRF members and non-members."
 The National Retail Federation is the nation's largest retail trade association. Its membership represents an industry that encompasses over one million U.S. retail establishments, employs 19.3 million people and registered 1991 sales in excess of $1.8 trillion. NRF's membership includes 27 national retail associations and all 50 state associations; and its international membership represents stores in 50 nations abroad.
