Nisa and MPK Accelerate Expansion with 17 New Forecourt Sites
Nisa, a leading supplier in the convenience store industry, and MPK Garages Ltd, a renowned operator of high-quality forecourts, are thrilled to announce the addition of 17 new co-branded Pop-In Daily / Nisa stores to their growing portfolio.
Following the successful transition of 11 former Morrisons Daily stores earlier this year, these new locations will further bolster MPK's retail estate with Nisa to a total of 28 stores.
Primarily situated in the Midlands, with additional stores along the M5 between Birmingham and Bristol, as well as the M1 between Nottingham and Durham, these forecourt sites range in size from 1,000sqft to 3,000sqft. The retail focus will centre on food-to-go and chilled offerings, providing customers with an enhanced shopping experience. Notably, each store will now feature an expanded range of products, including a wide selection of Co-op own brand items across all categories.
Wayne Harrand, Retail Director at MPK Garages Ltd, expressed his satisfaction with the initial transition of the 11 Morrisons stores, citing a seamless process and positive performance. This outcome has led to the decision to migrate the remainder of MPK's store portfolio to the Nisa supply chain. Harrand commended the Nisa team for their productivity and emphasized the strong platform they have provided for future growth within local communities.
Victoria Lockie, Head of Retail at Nisa, commented on the thriving forecourt business and expressed enthusiasm for the partnership with MPK, which strengthens Nisa's presence in this market segment.
Lockie said: “I’m absolutely delighted that 17 additional MPK stores will be joining Nisa over the coming months. Wayne and the team have proved to be fantastic to deal with since we began our relationship with the original 11 stores and I’m sure the relationship between Nisa and MPK will continue to grow from strength to strength.
“We are seeing some fantastic growth across our forecourt business at the moment and this partnership with MPK further strengthens our development in that particular market.”
