    Ascona Group has launched a Nisa Local store at Bridgwater Road Service Station in Bristol, enhancing its retail offer for customers.

    Having announced the purchase of the forecourt in October 2023, the former Budgens store recently underwent a significant refurbishment and reopened again as a Nisa Local at the beginning of March 2024. Located near Bristol Airport, the new Nisa Local store has a strong focus on ‘on-the-go missions’ with customers now able to take advantage of a new Starbucks coffee station, Skwishee drinks machine, Rollover hotdogs and an excellent value meal deal.

    In addition, the store offers a range of Bake & Bite hot food through Country Choice and a variety of frozen ready meals supplied by COOK. Alongside an improved food-to-go offer, the store also reopened with an extended chilled and ambient range across its 1,200 sq.ft including access to Co-op own brand products.

    The forecourt’s fuel provider has also switched from Shell to BP with new carwash and outdoor laundrette facilities now available for customers.

    “We are delighted to reopen the Bridgwater Road Service Station site with a significantly improved retail offer for our customers through our partnership with Nisa and other suppliers,” said Ascona Group founder and CEO Darren Briggs. “We look forward to serving the local community in Bristol with our combined fuel and retail offering.”

    “The Bridgwater Road Service Station is yet another fantastic forecourt site operated by Ascona Group,” added Phil Howell, Key Account Manager at Nisa. “The store now offers an enhanced foodto-go area and an improved overall convenience range for the community it serves. We have a fantastic working relationship with Ascona Group and look forward to working with the team on several projects this year.”
