Gruppo VéGé Opens 'Next Generation' Store In Sardinia
Italian local retailer Gruppo ISA has boosted its leadership position in Sardinia with the opening of a next-generation store in Oristano.
The Iper Nonna Isa store forms part of the Torre Eleonora commercial complex which spreads over 3,000 square metres and includes a bar, restaurant and a number of additional services.
The shopping complex has a very low environmental impact (energy class A3) and is fully energy sustainable with a 75 kW PV system, while the refrigeration system has zero impact in terms of CO2 emissions.
The store itself has a large fresh department - fruit and vegetables, cold cuts and cheeses, butchers, fishmongers and bakery, as well as an extensive wine selection.
The store also boasts an online click & collect service, which is also available in six other stores operating under the Nonna Isa banner.
Gruppo ISA is a member of the Gruppo VéGé, a large-scale retail group which incorporates over 30 local wholesalers and retailers.
Over the past year, the group has significantly expanded its membership and network, with the addition of S&C - Consorzio Distribuzione Italia; GDA; Fratelli Morgese; and Gruppo Vega.
The latest addition to the group is the Scudo Consortium, which operates in the Campania, Lazio, Basilicata, Puglia and Calabria regions, under banners such as Big Food, Franzese Raffaele, TRE P, Delizie del Sud and G.S.E.
With this new partnership, effective from 1 January, the Gruppo VéGé network will consist of 3,509 stores, with a commercial surface of 1.63 million square metres.
