Keeping you safe when you shop in our store

Updates on our stores

Store changes

Temporary opening hours

Temporary opening hours

Most of our stores will now be open from 7am to 8pm, every Co-op with a petrol station is open to 11pm so you can still fill up. It gives us the chance to restock, carry out a good clean and offer you a better service.

Fairer shopping

Fairer shopping

We’re working hard to remain as fully stocked as possible. To make sure there’s enough for everyone in your community, we’re limiting some in-store items to x2 per person. And please only buy what you need.

Social distancing

Social distancing

Social distancing saves lives. We’re encouraging contactless payments and reducing the number of open tills to provide greater distance between customers. Look out for the floor tapes and please respect them.

Possible limits

Possible limits

In some cases we might have to limit the number of people allowed in our store at one time. Please be patient if that’s the case, but remember that it’s essential to your health and the health of our colleagues.
