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.
