I don't fully understand the merger. Coop site says it is good deal for Nisa shops. Co-op completes acquisition of Nisa Retail Limited This closure contradicts what Coop have said. The Coop store in LJ has never worked that well. Not staff fault. Its to small. Does not have space for all Coop range. Regularly runs out of stock. Whereas the bigger one in Brixton road has more space and is better stocked. So if they take over Nisa site it should improve matters. As I use Loco opposite Tesco for my cheap beers and paypoint ( which works not all the time) as well as chat. I have started to buy some groceries there. Its much quicker than Coop or Tescos.
