A Suffolk supermarket is set to operate under a new name after switching suppliers.

The shop in Woodbridge’s Turban Centre has long operated under the Budgens brand but will now be supplied by Nisa Retail.

The 8,000 sq ft store, owned by Bens Ltd, is now a member of the £1.6billion member-owned convenience store business, which operates more than 2,500 stores through its symbol group structure.

Nisa took on 577 new stores in the 12 months prior to last October. It also revamped its own-label Heritage range last year. The retailer said it will stock the Heritage range alongside locally-supplied products in Woodbridge.

The store will be part of the Making A Difference Locally charity, which gives a percentage of sales from specific products to local charities or good causes chosen by the retailer and customers. The company is owned and run by its 1,200 registered shareholders, with profits usually reinvested in the business or redistributed for retailers to invest in their own businesses.

Lee Ballinger, Nisa retail development manager for the store, said: “We are looking forward to working with local suppliers to showcase the best of Suffolk in Woodbridge and combining this with Nisa’s fantastic own-label range, it is sure to be a recipe for success.”
