Nisa retailer Greens, part of Eros Retail, has bought Neish Supermarket at Clerkhill Road, Peterhead.

The store changed hands this week and over the coming weeks the store will gradually transition from Nisa Local to the independent Greens of Peterhead fascia.
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.”
In addition, Greens will introduce new hot and cold beverages, such as Costa Express, Skwishee Frozenated Drinks, and F’real milkshakes.
Fisher & Donaldson bakery items will also be delivered fresh daily in-store from Cupar, including the world-famous fudge doughnuts, following their success at Greens of Ellon.
Greens of Peterhead will continue to stock Co-op food products through supply partner Nisa Retail.
The store will also be looking to its extend opening hours from 7am – 10pm Monday to Saturday and 9am – 10pm on Sunday.
Harris Aslam, boss of 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.”
