Having successfully set up one c-store, Vijay Sathi set his sights on a second store – and in the first month of business takings are already up by an impressive 60%. Steven Lambert reports
Vijay Sathi is not one for sitting still. Having recently achieved his target of converting one Kent convenience store into a business with a turnover of more than £1.5m, the retailer has just opened his most recent venture in the town of Chatham.
Vijay says: “We’d had our eye on the property for some time. The previous owners had run the store for 30 years and, when they said they were selling up, we jumped at the chance to buy it.”
And the move is already paying dividends, with turnover at the new Nisa Local already up 60% in the first month.
While Vijay says he could immediately see the potential in the site – especially its location in a highly residential area – a lot of work would be needed to bring it up to standard.
