A new Nisa Local store will replace the local Co-op in Gedling next month and its owner is promising ‘more choice’ for residents.
The Gedling Road Co-op will close its doors in early July and the new independent owner will re-open under a Nisa Local fascia just days later.
Dharsan Premkumar of independent convenience store operator The Highbury Vale Limited, said the Nisa Local will offer a wide selection of Co-op own brand products including all the best sellers and there will be more choice for shoppers.
He said: “We are very community based and so we make sure our range responds to what our shoppers want.
“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.”
New promotions and deals will be introduced from many well-known brands, a coffee machine is to be installed along with a Payzone service and the current Evri service (previously Hermes) will continue to operate.
Nisa is part of The Co-op Group, which also means the current staff employed in the store will remain, ensuring a continued friendly service from familiar faces in the store.
“We are looking forward to opening the store with a fresh look and offering even more choice to local people in the community,” added Dharsan.
The current Co-op is set to cease trading on Tuesday, July 12 with the Nisa Local set to open its doors less than a week later on Monday, July 18.
