Major convenience store chain to open 400 new shops in huge expansion plans | The Sun

A MAJOR convenience store chain is to open 400 new shops as part of its huge expansion plans.

Nisa has already opened 130 new stores this year but it plans to open many more, meaning one could soon be popping up near you.

The chain already has more than 4,000 stores across the UK, with 437 opening in the last year alone.

Nisa boss Peter Batt said: "At Nisa we’re committed in ensuring our retailers are at the heart of the decisions we make, and we’ll continue to invest in our offer.”

The Sun has asked Nisa where and when it plans to open the new stores, and we will update this article once we hear back.

It comes after dozens of shops have disappeared from local high streets as retailers battle rising costs and falling football.

More than 100 branches of McColl's were closed after the convenience chain was taken over by Morrisons.

McColl’s was saved from closure after Morrisons swooped in to save 16,000 jobs back in May.

The chain struggled badly during the pandemic due to supply chain issues, inflation and a heavy debt burden.

Supermarket Iceland has also closed more than half a dozen stores this year.
