Siva’s shop has a remarkable feel and ambience – it’s a place where you want to shop. He’s thought through every aspect when approaching the redesign, using customer feedback and researching for a year before making changes.

Siva’s taken the Nisa concept and put his own stamp on it by adding a seating area, against all advice, and fitting different lighting to give a distinctive experiences in different sections.

His focus on adjacencies and flow means the shopper walks through different missions without realising they’re doing. This has lead to sales increases of 55% since he reopened.
