Nisa is claiming its stores can provide all a shopper’s Christmas food needs and promises a relatively quick and stress free shop when compared to larger supermarkets.

It adds that it helps consumers stay on budget by stocking everyday essentials, rather than stocking aisle upon aisle with products shoppers don’t need, but throw into their trolley anyway.

Ian Bishop, marketing director at Nisa, said: “People wishing to make their Christmas menu shopping as quick and hassle-free as possible should visit a Nisa convenience store. We have everything you need for your Christmas menu, including luxury meat and accompaniments from our brand new restaurant-quality Heritage Gourmet range.

“It’s also the perfect way to shop for people wanting to stick to a budget; our shops are a lot more compact than supermarkets so we stock the items people want and need rather than fill our aisles up simply to tempt people into buying items they haven’t budgeted for.”

He added that many of the 2,500 Nisa stores will be open on Christmas day, so people who’ve really cut it fine can buy a full festive menu on Christmas morning.
