A Nisa Local store in Cheshire is enjoying growing sales, following the completion of a takeover and redevelopment last year.

The 2,000 sq. ft Dallam Stores in Warrington, which was acquired by Mike Sohal in February 2018, has seen a 38% rise in overall sales year-on-year, with last quarter sales up 9% when compared to the previous three months.

Mike said: “Two years ago I was working with Nisa’s format and development team on the new store and we went through about 15 versions of the layout to get it right.

“It took a lot of time and effort to get it where it is today, but the numbers speak for themselves and show that it was definitely worthwhile.” 

The store has seen case volume increase by an average of almost 45% year-on-year, with the retailer handling an average of 1,219 cases from Nisa every week – including chill and freeze, while Post Office commission and scratch cards are up by 30% and 9% respectively year-on-year.

Mike added: “I always try to get great seasonal offers in the store and make sure the promotions get a lot of space in the shop so my customers can see what’s available and sales have increased as a result of that.”
