Here for our members

We don't answer to shareholders, we answer to you. Unlike most businesses, we're owned by millions of UK consumers. We're not a plc, so we can fight for the good of our members and customers. Anyone can join The Co-operative, you can become a member online now or just pick up a leaflet in store. As a member, you'll not only have a say in the way we are run, but also get a share in our profits, as a big thank you for shopping with us.

We’re part of the community

Here for everyone

The communities we serve have always been important to us. They are after all the very reason we were formed.

We have a long history of campaigning on issues that are relevant to our Members. Today, ‘championing’ is a core element of our Purpose, and in June 2015, we announced our new Charity Partnership with the British Red Cross to tackle loneliness in communities across the UK.

We're proud of our history

Helping communities thrive

Here for generations

Originally formed in Rochdale in 1844 to offer real value to the community, 168 years on and our founding principles still stand. The world may have changed somewhat in those years but the need for a more ethical business, a more honest one and a more customer focussed one clearly hasn't. We're here for you in good and bad times. We're here for you for life.
