In September 2020, Lincolnshire welcomed a brand-new convenience store in place of a derelict pub that has been standing empty and in disrepair for more than five years.
The old pub has been transformed into a modern Nisa Local store, creating 15 local jobs, and The Jordon Group had the pleasure of being the fit-out team for this exciting project.
The new Nisa store offers shoppers a fantastic range of fresh produce, a deli counter, hot and cold food-to-go, as well as a comprehensive grocery offer including a large selection of award-winning Co-op own label products.
Owner Siva Thievanayagam, who runs a number of other convenience stores in and around the Peterborough area, purchased the site in January and despite the added complications of Covid-19, the development ran to schedule and was delivered on time.
“We’ve worked really hard on the plans for this store. I really want people to walk in and get a good first impression as soon as they enter with a real wow factor.”
“I want the store to have a modern feel but one that is different and unique and that the store is a place where shoppers enjoy their experience.”
With the latest flooring, lighting, shelving and refrigeration, two self-scan checkouts, extensive off road parking and a strong focus on pricing and promotions along with the wide ranging food-to-go offer and extensive 45 metres of chilled bays, Siva hopes his latest store will be a hit with the local community which he plans to become an integral part of.
He said: “We are situated in the middle of a large residential area and have a college directly across the road and so we plan to become an important part of the community, employing local people, serving the local area, working with them and supporting them with local causes.
“I have lots of ideas about how we will get involved and I’m looking forward to opening our doors and welcoming our shoppers.”
We would like to thank Siva for choosing us as his shopfitting contractors and wish him the very best with his new convenience store.
