Nisa Local revamp to to include refill stations

Symbol group Nisa is to relaunch its Local format, focusing more on sustainability with its new add-in-store refill stations.

The refill stations will have a prominent position in Nisa Local stores, however, head of format Darren May revealed store owners could opt to remove them if they do not feel it is appropriate on their sites.

It follows the move made by Big 4 grocers Asda and Sainsbury’s, which adopted refill stations in stores. M&S also announced it is integrating the concept into some of its stores.

“We’re reinventing the Nisa Local format and its proposition to drive the modern-day consumer,” May told The Grocer.

“It’s about how we can use signage and display the product to emphasise these credentials. It’s a different way of utilising the planograms than we’ve ever done before and displaying the brand so it doesn’t just sit with the core range, it enhances it far more.”

The news comes as announced its new partnership with DHL launching a new digital way of working which will see the symbol group retailer scrap paper delivery notes.

Instead, the new electronic proof of delivery (EPOD) will be rolled out from the end of month with deliveries from all depots moving to the paperless system by early April.
