Does anyone know where there is a Nisa shop in Ipswich which sells Heritage food. Their lasagne is really lovely, but now our Village shop has closed I cant find anywhere that stocks them now.

Not quite an answer to the question, but a friend visiting from  Clacton (coincidentally) tells me that a Lasagne I had bought at Ipswich Lidl was the best that she had ever tasted! SO if Nisa is to far too far away, that might be worth a visit.
