Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

Forecourt store is star of Nisa's first ever TV ad

16 December, 2010

An independent forecourt in the northeast of England has become the location for Nisa-Today’s first ever TV advert.

The Total-branded forecourt’s Nisa-branded convenience store in Stockton-on-Tees will be featured in the £1.3m campaign that breaks on December 27 and will run until February 6.

The advertising campaign, which runs alongside a new trade marketing campaign, follows the launch of Nisa’s new brand positioning and redesigned corporate logo, focusing on its ‘making a difference locally’ strapline.

Neil Turton, chief executive officer at Nisa-Today’s, said: “Each year brings many challenges, but we feel confident that our new consumer and trade marketing campaigns put us in a strong position to not only drive further sales growth through existing members, but to also drive recruitment of new independent retailers and in doing so grow our business as a whole.”

John Stevenson, who runs the forecourt featured in the TV ad, said: “I’m expecting the promotions advertised to drive footfall into the store. We’re a brand new Nisa store in the area. I will be putting a banner on the forecourt and do some local press activity to make sure people know it’s our store in the advert.”

Nisa-Today’s currently delivers to 3,500 stores, 1,500 of which are through Costcutter. Of the remaining 2,000 stores, 800 are Nisa-branded, and there are 350 with forecourts. The wholesaler is expecting to add 200 more stores next year, and 25% of those are estimated to be on forecourts, with 20 sites already in the pipeline.
