Neish Supermarket Goes to Greens After 67 Years
Neish Supermarket (Nisa Local) at Clerkhill Road in Peterhead has changed hands after trading for over 67 years by the Neish and Anderson families. The supermarket has been acquired by Nisa partner Greens, part of award-winning Scottish convenience store operator Eros Retail, who also operate Greens of Ellon in Aberdeenshire.
R & I Neish Ltd have operated from the store since 1954, providing for their customer base by providing outstanding customer service and playing a very important part in their local community.
The store changed hands this week (Monday 16th August) with few changes made to the current offering immediately. Over the coming weeks, the store will gradually transition from Nisa Local to the independent Greens of Peterhead fascia, including expanded opening hours and a significantly enhanced in-store offering and experience.
Louise Moreland, Commercial Manager at Eros Retail, said: “We look forward to focusing on retaining and growing local offerings such as JG Ross and Bert Fowlie whilst also introducing fancy pieces from the likes of Gladstone Bakery which are manufactured less than a mile from the store."
"We are particularly thrilled to be expanding the butchery in the weeks after takeover which will now be overseen by our master butcher from Greens of Ellon, Barry Bartlet who will bring quality, freshness and deliver a wider variety of produce to the store.”
As well as expanding the in-store butchery to be preparing and producing fresh and local meat on site, Greens of Peterhead will introduce new hot and cold beverages such as Costa Express, Skwishee Frozenated Drinks, F’real milkshakes along with many other brands to offer an array of difference choices.
After the success at Greens of Ellon, Fisher & Donaldson award-winning bakers will also be delivered fresh daily in-store from Cupar including the world-famous fudge doughnuts.
Eros Retail are proud to support the community by extending the store times to allow more convenience to their customers. Shortly after takeover, the store will be looking to extend opening hours from 7am - 10pm Monday to Saturday and 9am - 10pm on Sunday.
Greens of Peterhead will continue to stock Co-op food products through supply partner Nisa Retail.
Harris Aslam, Director at Eros Retail, said: “We are honoured to be acquiring a store with such a strong legacy and hope to preserve the high standard of loyalty the community has experienced since 1954. We look forward to working closely with the store team, customers and local suppliers to bring new and exciting products and offerings to the store.”
As part of the transition, significant investment and upgrades will be made to the store including various energy efficiency measures.
