Welcome to Houghton Trading. We are a family business, with a history in convenience retailing dating back to the 1920's.Pat and Kishor Patel

Family business continues to restructure and reshape for the next generation, by investing in retail, property, new opportunities like the recent GO Houghton Bar & Restaurant and developing an online platform.

Since we sold three stores and a Post Office in April 2014, we continue to retail from the three Nisa Local stores in Hemel Hempstead, Elstree & Borehamwood Station and Stevenage, our ethos remains the same to invest in people, stores, technology, community and focusing on delivering shopper needs and experience they expect which makes our retail stores a “Great Place to Shop & Great Place to Work”

In 2015 with no experience in food and drinks hospitality we opened GO Houghton Bar & Restaurant which continues to go from strength to strength, we have created and trade marked an amazing GO brand and venue which is winning guests hearts & minds, winning awards and excellent reviews. We deliver on simple values “Honest Food Made & Served by Honest People”

Exciting new “Your Local Store” online platform is set to launch in 2017.
