With multi award-winning stores across the UK and Ireland, Nisa is the proven partner of choice for many market-leading, independently minded retailers.

For more than 40 years Nisa has been giving independent retailers the tools needed to compete against the ever-increasing competition in the convenience retail sector.

In May last year, the Co-op completed its acquisition of Nisa Retail. The wholesale operation will provide an environment in which independent retailers can flourish and brings enhanced buying capability, allowing Nisa Partners to trade their businesses how they choose, backed by competitive prices and promotions with access to a deeper range including the award-winning Co-op own label.

Nisa offers flexibility to retailers which is one of the big draws for many independent retailers. Matthew Croft who runs Croft Stores in Silverstone with his sister Sally Cann, said: “When we were thinking about going with a group we had to think about our customer base and what they would think when they saw a fascia, particularly when you consider how many years we had been operating independently.

“We were given advice that Nisa was the best group to go with and so we went out to visit some Nisa stores to get the look and feel.

“When we made the decision to join Nisa, it was made from our hearts and not just based on the business side of things. Nisa made it seem not such a big step and the flexibility really suits us.”

Retailers are offered a full support structure by a strong field team covering Retail Development Managers and Regional Retail Managers, in addition to Fresh Food Development Managers and Store Development Managers who help further develop stores.

This service is important to many retailers such as Frank and Adrienn Ago, of Snooty Fox in Shalford, Surrey. “If it wasn’t for Nisa we wouldn’t have gone for the shop – all the super support we get has made it so much easier. The field team is great and we really value their views because of their experience. We love their suggestions and the advice offered – it is fantastic support.”
