Edinburghretailer Margiotta Food & Wine has joined Nisa. The company’s seven-store estate is a major coup for Nisa as it leads up to losing the contract to supply Costuctter stores this summer.
The well-established family business has a combined turnover in excess of £7.5m and that is predicated to increase by £1m next year from its new store atPolwarthGardens.
The former Coscutter member has received a “supportive” transition to Nisa which was “incredibly easy.” Franco Margiotta, founder and director, said: “We have always bought through Nisa and with that strong relationship already established, we decided to go with the company. Staff at Nisa head office have been very supportive to enable an incredibly smooth and easy transition.”
Richard Scrimgeour, Nisa Retail Controller for Independent & Specialist, along with colleagues supported Franco through the simple transition. He said: “We are delighted to have Franco on board, he has a fantastic estate and a great team full of passion for quality retailing. We have provided new range details and drawn store plan suggestions in order to create the foundations of a critical path. This includes volume tracking against rebate earnings and plans to up-weight the brand interaction with their consumers by enhancing the marketing package.”
The Edinburgh stores are located on Ashley Terrace, Lasswade Road, WarrenderPark, Dundas Street,Northumberland Street, Comiston Road and the newest addition at PolwarthGardens.
