We regret to inform our customers that Midlands Co-operative Fashion & Home Department stores are proposed to be closing.

Major changes in the retailing sector and the ever increasing growth in online shopping over recent years have created significant and fundamental challenges for the Society’s Fashion & Home business. Whilst our other businesses have flourished, the Society has been incurring substantial losses from the Fashion & Home operation for more than a decade and in spite of sustained efforts to improve performance, the latest financial projections indicate a further decline with increasing losses in future years.

Over the next six months, the following stores may be affected:

  • Chesterfield Department Store, Elder Way
  • Coalville Department Store, Belvoir Road
  • Derby Department Store, Exchange Street
  • Ilkeston Department Store, South Street
  • Long Eaton Bed Centre, Cross Street
  • Stafford Department Store, Gaolgate Street
  • West Bridgford Department Store, Central Avenue
  • Wigston Department Store, Bell Street

All customer orders and gift vouchers will be honoured, and customer enquires will continue to be handled by staff at our Fashion & Home stores during the phased closure.

Member share accounts will continue to operate as usual. Members can make deposits at any of our retail stores. Withdrawals can be made on request from Member Services at the Business Support Centre, Hermes Road, Lichfield WS13 6RH, tel: 01543 414140 and in person from Chesterfield, Stafford, Derby, Ilkeston and Wigston Department Stores, while they remain open, plus the following food stores:

  • Eckington supermarket
  • Glenfield superstore
  • Market Harborough
  • Raunds supermarket
  • Tamworth superstore
  • Moulton food store
  • Coalville Bridge Road supermarket
  • Erdington superstore
