Nisa reports strong Christmas trading

Nisa, the delivered wholesaler and convenience retail specialist, saw its sales rise by 17.7% to £277 million in the 10 weeks to 31 December as the business benefited from an increase in the number of stores served and a positive like- for-like performance.

During the period, the number of stores served grew by 269. This included substantial organic growth of 106 stores and two new contract wins totalling 163 stores.

Nisa invested in seasonal promotions to drive member sales over the festive period which helped like-for-like sales to rise by 1.7%.

The company’s fresh range registered a 23.1% increase with pre-pack fruit sales up 38.1%, pre-pack vegetables up 38.6% and ready meals up 43.7%.

In addition to the 140 Costcutter stores that have recently begun trading with Nisa, a further 1,090 are now expected to start trading from January 2018.

Arnu Misra, chief executive of Nisa Retail, said: “Nisa has delivered a strong programme to help drive sales and footfall in our members’ stores, and with the support of our members, we have built a solid foundation for 2018.”
