Co-op Food Opening Hours
Co-op Food, previously trading as The Co-operative Food, is a brand devised for the food retail business of the consumer co-operative movement in the United Kingdom. The brand is used by over 15 different co-operative societies which operate over 4,000 outlets, and does not represent one single food retail business. The successor to Co-op Welcome and a range of regional formats, the latest version of the brand was introduced in 2016 with a significant advertising campaign. Customers of many of the larger UK co-operative societies can earn an annual share of the profits at any "Co-operative" branded shop in proportion to purchases through The Co-operative Membership scheme. In 2016, The Co-operative Food accounted for approximately 6.6% of the UK grocery market and was the winner of "convenience retailer of the year" at the 2016 Retail Industry Awards. The Cooperative Retail Group is expanding and will create 1,500 new jobs and open 100 new shops in 2017.
