Merry Christmas graphic of a snowman and tree


As we look forward to spending Christmas with our friends and families, I just want to take a moment to say merry Christmas, and thank all our colleagues who’ll be working over Christmas and New Year.

It’ll be a busy week in our Food stores, especially as we’ll be open later than the big supermarkets on Christmas Eve, making us a popular destination for last minute shoppers. We’re off to a brilliant start already with Christmas products selling well and the stores looking in great shape. Our logistics teams have been amazing. This week alone they’ll move 11.5 million cases of product so our customers and members can get all they need.

But it’s not just in Food that colleagues will be working hard over the holiday. Our Funeralcare colleagues will be on hand 24/7 to support families in need, and our Insurance and Legal Services colleagues will be providing help and advice to customers.

Wherever you work I want to say a massive thank you for keeping our Co-op running.

I’m looking forward to being in stores and meeting other colleagues later this week to see the great job you’re all doing.

So all that’s left for me to say is: make the most of double discount on Friday and Saturday, remember to treat yourself with your 5% reward in your Membership wallet, and have a great Christmas whatever you’re doing.

Thank you, and see you in 2018.
