Today we’ve announced an exclusive partnership with Glastonbury to take our pop-up shop to this year’s festival.
Their famously high environmental and community responsibility standards led to us being carefully selected. Together we’re the perfect fit!
We’ll be offering a wide range of food and drink to about 175,000 Glasto-goers, including all the essentials like sandwiches, water, bacon, eggs and bread, and the obligatory sun cream and ponchos.
And it doesn’t stop there, we’re also heading to Belladrum in Scotland, and continuing our Live Nation partnership for a second year, returning to Download, Latitude, Reading and Leeds, while adding Isle of Wight and Creamfields to the roster for 2019, too.
2019’s Festival Crew, be part of it
Last year was a huge success, and it had a lot to do with our Festival Crew – our colleagues. When they weren’t soaking up the festival vibes and listening to live music between shifts, they were serving over 200,000 customers and shifting stock to keep our 6,000sq ft pop-up shop running day and night.
The stories I heard from colleagues were amazing and our customers took notice; 96% of them left the festival shop feeling satisfied, and 74% said they felt more positive about Co-op after shopping with us.
This year we’ll have even more customers to serve and stock to move, so we need your help. The 2019 Festival Crew is recruiting and we hope colleagues from across Co-op will be able to come along to be part of the excitement.
Have a proper read of what it means to be a part of our Festival Crew first, and if you’re still up for it, get your application in by Wednesday 10 April.
Best of luck!
