Nisa has reported further strong recruitment numbers, with 242 stores onboarded in the five months to May 2020.
This follows a robust year post acquisition by The Co-op Group in May 2018 and places Nisa £2.4m ahead of its recruitment budget for the year-to-date.
The 242 new recruits include 37 sites secured with growing forecourt retailer Ascona Group. The strong start to 2020 follow a record 2019 for Nisa with over 500 stores enlisted, marking a 40% like-for-like leap in store number recruitment.
Ken Towle, CEO of Nisa Retail Limited, said it had been an “incredibly busy” start to the calendar year: “The additional 242 recruitment wins build on the positive momentum set in 2019 and are testament to the strength of Nisa’s retail and wholesale offering.
“I am pleased to welcome our new partners, who will receive industry leading support, competitive prices and have access to the award-winning Co-op own brand.
“As we move into H2, we will continue to support our partners, ensuring they are able to operate profitably and remain well equipped to serve their communities.”
