Keeping you safe when you shop in our stores
We’re slowly getting back to normal life, but you still need to be careful when you’re shopping. Find out the changes we’ve made so you can feel safe when visiting your local Co-op.
Your local store opening hours may be different to usual. Find your usual opening times here and call ahead if in doubt.
As social distancing measures begin to change, look out for the signs in store to guide you, and please shop with care.
Face coverings are now compulsory for customers and staff at our stores. If you’re able to do so then we’d ask you to wear one, although we realise it’s not possible for everyone.
Changes to your shop
We still have a dedicated shopping hour for our vulnerable customers, those who care for them and our brilliant NHS workers. The hour is 8am to 9am Monday to Saturday and from 10am to 11am on Sundays.
Contactless card payments limits have been increased to £45, making it easier and safer to buy items.
We’ve made it easier for those staying at home to pay for and get their essentials delivered with our Community Shopping Scheme. If you’ve been instructed by the Government to stay home, you can purchase or top up our Community Shopping Card by calling 0800 029 4592. Friends, family or volunteers can use this to do your shopping in store.
Stay active and creative this summer
As the days get warmer, why not try a few dishes that offer the brighter, lighter flavours we all enjoy this time of year?
Spend less time working out meals to reduce stress, enjoy more of the summer and prevent food waste.
