How the co-operative movement pulled itself together

Alan Treadgold, retail expert at PA Consulting, is quoted in The Grocer’s article on the co-operative model and why it is successful.

The piece explains that one reason for Co-op’s success is a focus on playing to its strengths, and in the first instance convenience food retailing. Alan says: “It’s coincided with a shift in the way consumers shop, with the co-operative model’s typically smaller format stores dovetailing nicely with a “trend towards convenience” in grocery.”

The article goes on to talk about what co-op retailers do for their community.

Alan comments: “The values [the co-ops promote] are about being part of a community, being supportive of communities and suppliers, doing the right thing in terms of sustainability, operating at a local level, participation.”

He adds: “There’s a sense that when you’re shopping at the co-op, you’re doing something good - as well as getting a good offer that you can benefit from.”
