A new Nisa Local forecourt store that has just opened in West Yorkshire has been met with compliments from locals who have been using the site for two decades, according to its owners Salim and Mumta Patel. Crown Services in Brighouse was closed last September to allow a much smaller shop to be demolished and the whole site to be redeveloped.
The couple are overjoyed to finally have their new store open, almost 20 years to the day since they bought the site, and believe the long hours they put into the project managing the overhaul have definitely been worth it.
Mumta explained: "This is not just a store, it is our livelihood. We have worked so hard to get where we are and this is like a dream come true."
The couple were involved with every step of the new build, from handpicking the floor tiles to designing the signage for the food to go area.
"This is our store and everything in it is bespoke," said Mumta.
