Hedon Co-op to become Nisa store

WHILST NO OFFICIAL confirmation has been received, it seems that the Hedon Co-op is going to become a Nisa Local store. Sources indicate the changeover could take place next month.

The Co-op acquired Nisa Retail Limited in May 2018 in a £143m deal that resulted in nearly a doubling of the stores that the Co-op supplies. Nisa Partners in the deal retained their rights to run independent convenience stores as a brand. They can choose to include Co-op’s own brand range in their stores. Partners can run as a Nisa Local or under their own name.

Whilst NISA Retail is part of Co-op Group, the Co-op Member Rewards cannot be earned in NISA stores. The nearest Co-op store will be the Thorngumbald branch.

We will bring you more information as it is released.

  1. A spokesperson from the Co-op has confirmed that the store has been sold to an independent operator:

    “The Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum and while this often involves opening new stores, we also regularly review our existing sites. The decision to sell any store is never taken lightly and, only after careful consideration has our Hedon store been sold. Our priority has been to fully support colleagues, who all have the opportunity to transfer to the new operator. We would like to thank the community for its support of this store over the years.”

    The spokesperson is keen to point out that the decision to sell the store is in no way a reflection on the hard work and commitment of colleagues, who have been informed.
