Successful Nisa Local store handed over to new owners
A busy community focused Nisa Local store in the heart of the Calder Valley has transferred ownership this month.
The store in Hebden Bridge has been sold to growing convenience retailer and Nisa partner AMACOR Capital Limited (AMACOR), making it the 13th store on their expanding portfolio.
Situated in the heart of the West Yorkshire town, the store will continue to trade under a Nisa Local fascia with customers unaffected by the handover.
Alex Wilson, head of acquisitions at AMACOR, said: “We’ll be operating with the same team and will continue to stock the specialist ranges which we know is key to the local customers. It is important to us that we continue to serve the existing customer base and to ensure the level of service and niche products continue to be available to them. In time, we will undertake a store refresh including a new updated fascia and a range review."
The store boasts a wide array of meat-free products and specialist plant-based goods as well as a broad selection of fine wines along with the usual convenience offer and is renowned locally for this USP.
Alex said: “Our customers should not notice any real difference other than a few small tweaks and we expect shoppers to continue to be satisfied with the excellent product choice in the store.”
Martin Corban, Managing Director at AMACOR commented: “I’m really pleased to get the store across the line, it should be a great addition to our portfolio. We wish John the very best for the future.”
AMACOR is a highly acquisitive convenience store business, established in 2018 with clear ambitions to grow their portfolio of stores to 20 by the end of the year. They joined Nisa as a key account in the summer of 2019.
Manager of the key accounts team at Nisa, Ian Bacon said: “We’re delighted to be working with AMACOR and supporting them with their growth strategy. The Hebden Bridge store is a fantastic business which has been serving its community well for many years and we’re pleased to see it remain within the Nisa family and look forward to it continuing to perform over the coming months.”
