Long-awaited conversion for Lancashire c-store

Posted on August 14, 2019

A substantial project which will see an 18-year independently run store undergo a complete transformation is set to be completed by the end of the month.

The site in Morecambe, Lancashire belongs to long-time independents Beech Stores and is undergoing a £150,000 refit, including the addition of a shiny new Nisa fascia.

The small village store, which has been run by the Brown family for over a decade, has been a local favourite for many years and residents have been eagerly waiting in anticipation for the new development to be completed. 

Key features in the new retail space, which has expanded by 360sq. ft., will include an additional 8m of chillers and 3m of freezers, a cake cabinet for fresh bakery items from local business Thurwell Bakery, fresh sandwiches alongside an improved food-to-go range and a vast selection of Co-op own label lines. 


James Brown, who now runs the business after it was passed down to him by his father said: “Our family business has been operating since 2001 and has evolved greatly through the generations. When the store was passed to me, I felt it was important to bring it right up to date due to having last had any work done over 18 years ago. 

“I’m delighted to re-open the store as a ‘Nisa Local’ and I know some of our loyal customers are excited to see all of the changes too. 

“The regeneration of Beech Stores is a fantastic opportunity for our family business to proudly continue serving and supporting the increasing population in Heysham - it’s important to us that we meet the expectations of the local community.”

The refit is still a work in progress, but the development is running to schedule and the family will be holding an in-store event on Wednesday 21st August to mark the official re-opening.
