To be the best community retailer, growing the business for the future and considering co-operative principles in everything we do.
We are one of the few truly independent co-operative retailers and sit at the heart of the communities in which we serve across the retail estate. We are totally committed to meeting the needs and wider aspirations of our members, customers and the people who reside within our trading area. Established in 1868, the Society currently comprises of thirteen convenience stores (with a new one opening soon), a large supermarket with a non-food offering, food hall and travel agency and a 1,000 acre dairy farm.
Social responsibility is part of the fabric of the organisation which has its roots based on the founding principles of the co-operative movement.
We’re an independent, member owned co-operative retailer operating a number of community stores and a superstore located in and around Somerset.
As an ethical retailer we support Fairtrade and local suppliers. We have regard for animal welfare and take our responsibility for social and environmental matters very seriously. We endeavour to engage with the local communities within our trading areas.
