Plungington Co-op has closed and will be replaced by a Nisa.

A Co-op spokesperson confirmed the store had been sold, and told Blog Preston: “Safeguarding local jobs is a priority and colleagues will transfer to the new operator under TUPE regulations.”

Nisa¬†operates as part of Co-op’s wholesale arm after Co-op purchased¬†Nisa¬†in 2018.


Stores are all independently owned and operated but receive wholesale goods from Nisa. While some Nisa stores take on the Nisa fascia, some choose an independent look. 

A spokesperson for Nisa said the store should “open again soon” but was unable to confirm a date.
