The Gedling Road Co-op in Nottingham will close its doors in early July and new owner, Dharsan Premkumar, will re-open it under a Nisa Local fascia on July 18th.
Dharsan, of independent convenience store operator The Highbury Vale Limited, had already taken on a former Co-op on Chanterlands Avenue in Hull in March 2020 and converted it to a Nisa Local (pictured).
He plans to make the most of Nisa promotions in his Gedling Road store, alongside the Co-op own label range. New additions to the store will include a coffee machine and Payzone with the current Evri service continuing to operate.
“We are very community based and so we make sure our range responds to what our shoppers want,” he said. “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.”
Existing Co-op store colleagues will remain, ensuring a continued friendly service from familiar faces in the store.
The current store is set to cease trading on Tuesday 12th July with the Nisa Local due to open its doors the following Monday.
