Big-thinking retailer Jay Javid has opened the doors on his eighth Nisa Local store, in Renfrew, with a ninth soon to follow in Giffnock.
The Renfrew store was developed by Jay’s company PGNJ, a Nisa key account that moved to the symbol group less than a year ago with six stores.
It has undergone a full refurbishment with all the latest fixtures and fittings incorporated as well as spacious aisles and a wide foyer area to improve access for wheelchair users and prams.
The store offers grocery, BWS and a wide food-to-go choice comprising Costa Coffee, Skwishee, Slush and f’real. There are also freshly baked cakes, pies and sandwiches available as well as more than 1,000 Co-op own brand products.
Jay said development was the best part of retail for him: “Turning an empty shell in to a community store is what it’s all about.”
He said PGNJ prided itself on offering customers affordable, reliable, sought after products that are displayed in an easy and attractive manner.
“It doesn’t matter if you have one store or 10, we still merchandise our stores like our first. It’s our business but it’s my passion to merchandise,” he said. “Our crisp, cool style and use of modern lighting is designed to make our customers’ shopping experience that bit more pleasant.”
Victoria Lockie, Head Of Key Accounts at Nisa, commented: “This development really is brilliant and the finished store looks fantastic. We’re thrilled to be working with the team at PGNJ and are looking forward to supporting them on their journey which is proving to be extremely exciting and fast-paced. A huge well done to everyone on this latest addition to the PGNJ portfolio.”
