East Tilbury store to get a refit

Our store in Princess Margaret Road in East Tilbury will be closing for a refit at 7pm on Saturday 27th October and re-opening at 7am on 7th November. 

The store will have an extended range of chilled meats and dairy as well as an improved range of beers, wines and spirits. 

There will be TRIPLE POINTS for members from 7th - 11th November and if you're not a member why not join on the re-opening day and the first people to sign up will receive a FREE goody bag.

We are looking for champions within your community!

 Help us to help you & your neighbourhood!  We are looking for champions within your community to ensure our support meets the local needs. If you're interested in getting involved, we would love to hear from you. We will then look to organise a get together in your area of likeminded people to discuss the ways in which we can work together.  There are a number of ways you can get in touch: 

Chelmsford Star Co-op Reports “Investment Is Paying Dividends”

Essex-based independent co-op, Chelmsford Star, announced a year-on-year growth in sales of 3.9% at its half-yearly interim meeting this week, increasing to 4.4% growth when measured on a like-for-like basis. The result has been fuelled by excellent performances in its core food and funeral businesses, which CEO Barry Wood puts down to significant investment ‘behind the scenes’ over the last few years. 

Weekend bereavement support to continue into 2019


Earlier this year, our Funerals team launched a brand new weekend Bereavement Aftercare & Support Group. The service is aimed at those of working age who may find it difficult to attend a support group around the normal working day. 


We are pleased to say that the sessions have been very well received, and will be continuing into 2019. The sessions take place in a private room at Chelmsford Library on a Saturday morning (9am - 11am), and are an informal opportunity for people to meet with others in a similar situation. 


We've gone Community Card crazy!


Our Membership & Community team have been very busy over the past couple of weeks. They've been getting out and about and presenting money raised on our fundraising Community Cards to a number of groups across Essex. 


We've presented Braintree Town Football Club with a cheque for £180. The Football Club plans to put this money towards a disabled toilet facility.

Thriftwood School in Chelmsford received £255, and their funds are going towards subsidising school trips for the children.
