Nisa partner Amacor expands portfolio to 13 stores

Nisa retailer Amacor has added the 13th convenience store to its portfolio after acquiring a Nisa in Hebden Bridge.

Amacor, which was established in 2018, hopes to buy seven more stores by the end of the year.

It has been a Nisa key account since 2019.

The Hebden Bridge shop will keep its Nisa Local brand, with the only difference for customers reportedly being “a few small tweaks”.

The store is known locally for its vegan and wine selection, and will continue to stock these “specialist ranges”, according to Amacor acquisitions head Alex Wilson.

He added: “It is important to us that we continue to serve the existing customer base and to ensure the level of service and niche products continue to be available to them.”

Amacor managing director Martin Corban said the shop was “a great addition to our portfolio”.

The company’s most recent acquisitions have been concentrated in the North West, with purchases in Blackpool, Liverpool and Salford.

Plans to grow its portfolio to 20 stores this year would mark a dramatic change of pace, as it has bought just three stores over the past ten months.

“We’re delighted to be working with Amacor and supporting them with their growth strategy,” Nisa key accounts team manager Ian Bacon said.

“The Hebden Bridge store is a fantastic business which has been serving its community well for many years and we’re pleased to see it remain within the Nisa family.”

The news comes after Nisa partnered with Jisp to offer the shopping app’s delivery and scanning services to around 4000 stores across the country.
