Midlands based symbol group, Select and Save, are reviewing its contact with wholesale partner Nisa after their contact ended on April 30.
An extension has yet to be signed and Select and Save currently have trials underway with several wholesalers at their company stores.
Nisa and Select and Save have a 15 year relationship and Kam Sanghera, who established the group in 1999 with fellow entrepreneur Steve Jones, has seen the group grow significantly over the intervening years.
The group has a turnover in excess of £20m per year and 65 retail stores.
“The Select and Save brand has become a major player in the convenience symbol sector and we are grateful for all the support that the Nisa organisation has contributed towards our overall growth,” said Sanghera.
“However, with the challenges that Nisa now faces and the uncertainty within the convenience sector at the moment, it is now time to review the arrangement we have in place so that we can continue to offer members the stability and confidence they expect while letting them develop their entrepreneurial skills and develop their businesses.”
Sanghera has ambitious plans to expand Select and Save’s membership to 200 stores by 2020 and says a deadline for finding a new supplier would be as early as the end of June so as to minimise any upheaval for members.
