Nisa, the delivered wholesaler and convenience retail specialist, has agreed to provide a new short term supply contract to its member McColl’s Retail Group (McColl’s).
The new contract commences on 4 December, and covers the McColl’s stores that were previously supplied by Palmer and Harvey (P&H), which fell into administration on 28 November.
The strength and flexibility of Nisa’s distribution model has enabled it to provide continuity to McColl’s, at a time of significant industry turmoil following the sad demise of Palmer and Harvey. Nisa has moved at pace to mobilise its support, while ensuring its existing availability levels will be maintained for all members throughout the important Festive Trading period.
All of the McColl’s stores previously supplied by Palmer and Harvey will receive ambient stock delivered through existing Nisa-supplied McColl’s stores, for onward transfer by McColl’s teams.
Arnu Misra, interim CEO of Nisa, said, “I’m very pleased that Nisa has been selected by McColl's to further support them at this crucial time. We have a highly flexible distribution model that enables us to scale quickly to members needs and as demand dictates.
'As a result, we will continue to manage both existing and new members without impacting our traditionally high levels of service, especially over the peak trading period.”
