Recently bereaved given Christmas support...

Families of the recently deceased were given comfort last week when a local funeral director held two Christmas Remembrance Services across Essex, at the same time.

The events were held by Co-op Funeral Directors, owned by local co-operative, Chelmsford Star, at both the Central Baptist Church in Chelmsford City Centre and their private Chapel at the Clare Road, Braintree branch. 

Well done to Ame & Ryan...

Well done to our colleagues, Ame Pegram (Nevenden Road food store) and Ryan Emery (Hutton food store) for completing the Broadgate stair climb last month.

They completed 3 climbs each, totalling a 1/4 of a mile. Ryan completed this in 35:05 and Ame completed it in 39:39. 

Christmas Comes Early for RSPCA Danaher Animal Home


The cats, dogs and small animals at RSPCA Danaher Animal Home are in for a treat this Christmas, as our members and colleagues generously donated a range of food, toys and treats to the local animal charity.


Senior Animal Care Assistant, Jack Taylor, brought 5 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Shadow, along to our Braintree Quadrant store today to collect the goodies and to meet some of the members who had donated.


Quadrant is 'on the Buses'!

Our 'Be Inspired' campaign is now live on many buses around the Chelmsford & Braintree areas. Have you spotted any?

The 'Be Inspired' campaign has been launched to showcase the vast array of fantastic brands and products that we have across our two department stores, located in Chelmsford City Centre and in George Yard Shopping Centre Braintree. 

Wine of the best...

"You know Christmas is nearly here when you start planning your festive drinks. It’s a good time to think about trying something new — maybe a fruitier white to go with your Christmas Day meal or a new fizz for your New Year celebration? At Co-op, we have a huge range of beers, wines and spirits for you.
