Nisa-Today’s has added two new members in Ireland, Ardkeen Quality Food Store in Waterford and Nolan’s Supermarket in Clontarf, north Dublin. Both are well-established, family-run businesses; Ardkeen Quality Food Store, (15,000 sq ft) features in the Bridgestone Guide 2009, and Nolan’s Supermarket, trading since 1955, resides in a 30,000 sq ft shopping centre run by the Nolans.
Kevin Jephson, director of Ardkeen Quality Food Store said: “The benefits that membership of Nisa-Today’s brings to our consumers have been two-fold. The economies of scale afforded to members of Nisa ensure that we pass on a decrease in the price of everyday brands, thus enabling us to focus on sourcing and nurturing local and artisan producers, developing our unique food offering.”
Both stores will be stocking goods from Nisa-Today’s range of over 9,000 lines from its ambient warehouse in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire. Andrew J Mouse, Nisa-Today’s group sales director said both were “superb retailers.”
“We’re now achieving a weekly volume of 18,000 cases and are on course to exceed £11 million in value per annum in the Republic of Ireland,” he said.
Nisa entered the market here in March 2008 and is currently working with nine retailers. A spokesperson told ShelfLife, “We’re also experiencing unprecedented interest from others, but are unable to divulge the names of all of them for reasons of confidentiality.”
