You can find out if your local Co-op is part of the Co-op Group or part of an independent Co-operative Society by using our store finder.
If your store is part of an independent co-operative society, there will no Co-op logo on the map pin and it will clearly state if that the store is part of an independent co-operative society, e.g. “Part of Central England Co-operative”.

You may also recognise a difference in the branding, all Co-op Group stores have the ‘blue’ branding with the exception of a few which have the ‘green’ Co-operative Food branding. By 2019, all Co-op Group stores will have the ‘blue’ branding.
All independent societies have their own branding or use the ‘green’ Co-operative food branding.
