About us


Formed by the merger of Midlands and Anglia Co-operatives, Central England Co-operative is one of the largest independent retailers in the UK, with over 400 trading outlets, a family of around 8,600 colleagues and more than 330,000 regular trading members.

We’re independent from The Co-operative Group, but we’re part of the wider co-operative movement, working together to provide all sorts of benefits for our members and customers.

Central England Co-operative trades across 16 counties from the Midlands to the East Coast - through more than 200 foodstores, 100-plus funeral homes, filling stations, post offices, travel branches, florists, opticians, masonry outlets, a crematorium and a coffin factory.

Our vision is to be the UK’s best consumer co-operative by making a real difference to our members and our communities.
