Chamber of trade

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

Often confused with the Chambers of Commerce, a chamber of trade is an organization set up by retailers in a locality to protect their common interests particularly in such matters as local authority rating policies. Since 1897 it has had a parent body known as the National Chamber of Trade, which, like the Association of British Chambers of Commerce, represents the genuine interests of its members (the various local chambers) on a national level.
