Top retailer enjoying life with Nisa

Posted on March 07, 2015

Nisa announced in October 2014 that high profile retailer Paul Cheema and his family had joined Nisa, bringing his award winning retail estate into the group’s membership under the latest store of the future format.

Paul’s decision to join Nisa was driven by its emphasis on quality fresh and chilled food, together with its wide ranges of ambient and chilled own label products, while the groups mutual style model, meaning profits are reinvested back into the business or redistributed to members, was also important to the independent retailer.

“I believed membership of Nisa would enhance our convenience store offering to existing customers, attract new customers and significantly grow sales. As a family we felt we needed to review our supply arrangements and take this step forward following a period of woeful service from our former retail partner Costcutter,” said Paul.

“The efficiency of Nisa’s distribution operation was a big draw and I’ve been very impressed with the roll out of its new own label Heritage range. Ultimately, we trust Nisa, are encouraged by the direction it is moving and are looking forward to working together to further improve and develop our customer offer.

“Early experiences with Nisa have proved our decision to move our business over to them was well founded; we’ve adopted the excellent Heritage range, have enjoyed fantastic availability and we’re very positive about the future,” Paul concluded.

Neil Turton, Nisa CEO, commented: “We were delighted when Paul, Pinda and his family decided to join the Nisa family and are enjoying working closely with them. We feel it speaks volumes about the strength of the Nisa proposition that such well respected retailers have trusted us to assist them in taking their business to the next level. We’ve always said that we are in business to make money for our members and not out of them – we find that is a commitment which resonates with independent retailers.”
