Hullbridge store gets Parish approval

Wednesday Jun 05, 2024

Our store on Ferry Road, Hullbridge, was the latest to receive a make-over and take the International Co-op logo when it was relaunched to the public on 31st May.


Ribbon-cutting honours went to Kevin O’Brien, Vice Chairman of Hullbridge Parish Council (centre), accompanied by our Society President, Tony Price. Store Manager, James Turner, was on hand to guide our guests around his new look store, which includes a revamped interior and expanded ranges, including the popular food-to-go section.

The store has worked closely with Hullbridge Parish Council over the years, including regular donations to help ensure the Council can meet it’s pledge that no one over 80 will go hungry over Christmas.

Mr O’Brien joined as a member on the day, encouraged by the new range of discounts available, but added, “my wife has been a Chelmsford Star Co-op member for years and can always find what she wants.”

The revamp is the sixth of the co-op’s food estate to receive the modern new look and take the International Co-op Alliance branding, with several still to come this year.  Colleagues have been quick to reassure customers that, despite the change in fascia colours, the store still remains independently owned.



Last Christmas, the HPC and Chelmsford Star worked together to ensure the elderly had enough food in the cupboards for a meal.

Bright new lighting makes the store easier to shop.

More ‘food to go’ options includes hot food, slushies and doughnuts.

Members are currently getting 10% off their spend between Monday – Friday.
