New Nisa store for Nottingham offering best of Co-op

A new Nisa Local store is soon set to launch in Nottingham offering shoppers an extended product range along with some new lines.

The Gedling Road Co-op will close its doors in early July and the new owner will re-open under a Nisa Local fascia days later.

Dharsan Premkumar, of the independent convenience store operator, The Highbury Vale Ltd, who runs other stores in Nottingham as well as Hull, said the Nisa Local will offer a wide selection of Co-op own brand products including all the best sellers and there will be more choice for shoppers.

Dharsan said, “We are very community based and so we make sure our range responds to what our shoppers want. We will still be offering our customers the best of Co-op through a bigger Co-op own-brand range than is currently available, and overall there will be more choice in the store from across all brands.”

Dharsan, who took on a former Co-op in Hull in March 2020 and converted it to a Nisa Local, said he plans to make the most of the Nisa promotions and deals alongside the Co-op own label range and new additions to the store will include a coffee machine and Payzone with the current Evri service continuing to operate.

Existing Co-op store colleagues will remain, ensuring a continued friendly service from familiar faces in the store.

“We are looking forward to opening the store with a fresh look and offering even more choice to local people in the community,” Dharsan added.

The current store is set to cease trading on Tuesday 12 July with the Nisa Local due to open its doors less than a week later on Monday 18 July.
