Nisa gonna show everyone how bombad Nisa really is!

The new Nisa supermarket opening in Jude Court on Mantle Road is being fitted out, with shelving currently being installed. It is going to be pretty big - it looks larger than the nearby Costcutter, for example - and should prove stiff competition for similar retailers in the area.

Hopefully it will invest in some quality customer service. the women in the costcutter look like they have been licking cats piss off a nettle with attitudes to match. Will still always get my veg from the Broca Foodmarket though, love that shop.

I'll try it out as Costcutter have overcharged me, sold me out of date produce and their card machine takes forever. Male staff can be a little rude too.

Isn't the shop next to the Broca food market a Nisa? Is that going to close?

I hope it doesn't adversely affect the Broca, which is a great shop.

There's lots of places westside, with the Quickstop Shop, Broca, the one next to the Broca, St Asaph food and wine, the Co-op and two newsagent/corner shops all within 5 minutes of each other. I can't see them all surviving with this new one.

And why Co-op didn't go there rather than down the road seems a bit of a weird decision.

I won't be using this shop as I would much rather support Brockley Market and the more locally run shops. Hope people feel the same as me but can only see with time.

can someone advise whether I should

a) Shop there (sorry, 'support' it) as it's not Tesco.

b) Boycott it as it's a Supermarket and sells most staples cheaper than 'Independants'

d) Shop there because it's a franchise run by a hard working family

e) Boycott it, but only if it sells pinapples.

by the way, always found Costcutter perfectly OK for the occasional pint of milk and emergency onion.

@mb it's fine to sell pineapples, so long as the name of your shop doesn't sound like the sort of place that wouldn't sell pineapples.

Not sure where I stand on Dukes Night Store, don't think they sell pinapples.

I can see me using this shop a lot, straight off the train in evening. I live west side so ideal. I can't se how the other shops west side won't suffer, but maybe it will encourage them to raise their game.

Does anyone know if the Nisa next to Broca is relocating to Jude Court??

Costcutter is ok, yes the staff are far from "friendly" but its reasnoble and has a pretty good selection. I'd be miserable if I was serving drunks on 14 hour shifts.

The competition has to be good.

Not sure what Dukes really sell but customers park up in the middle of the night, nip in and then they're gone. I'm just saying...

Raising their game is an understatement for the shops on the "west side"!

I'm hoping the old small Nisa closes and something more exciting opens (optimistic perhaps?)

Why does crofton park get the decent stores? We are desperate for a few good supermarkets in brockley!

Wendy said...

Eh? This isn't crofton park?

I thought the BDS was giving the area all the "stiff" competition it could handle...

errr...it's just a nisa shop.....and they are all total rubbish.

The Jude Court Nisa is separate from the one next to the Broca. Nisa is a member-owned organisation - if you want to set up a shop with them, you buy shares in the company. You choose whether to have the Nisa logo on your storefront. The stores are independently run - Nisa is your wholesaler and supplier.

The Jude Court Nisa will be run by a family that have another supermarket in SE London - was told where, but can't remember, offhand. Not sure exactly when it will open - shopfitting seems to have taken a while to get going.

It would be good if the new owners recognised that their store was in Brockley and not Haynes Park.
