Franchise convenience store chain Nisa is welcoming the return of retail group Redorange in oder to provide greater purchasing power, it has been announced today.
A non-profit making organisation, Redorange is owned by local retailers and aims to offer the best purchasing price for the benefit of participating shops and its associate members.
Nisa said that the return will allow Redorange to benefit from its “unbeatable range, buying power and its focus on providing benefits to its members”, adding that a vast product range including an own label offering will be available as well as a member support package.
In the summer of 2010, Redorange announced a five year supply deal with Nisa-Today’s competitor Costcutter, leaving the former after 25 years as a member and Redorange Managing Director Chris Futter explained the reasons behind the latest deal.
He commented: “In view of the uncertainty over the Costcutter supply route in the long term and the lack of any assurances from Costcutter, Redorange has seized the initiative and negotiated an alternative guaranteed method of purchasing stock.”
In October last year, Nisa-Today’s announced its separation following a member vote at its AGM and Andrew J Mouse, Nisa Group Sales Director, welcomed the latest development as the retailer seeks to improve its offer.
He added: “Redorange shares many of our businesses core values and we see this partnership as an ideal fit for both companies.”
