Coronation Street is celebrating their 60th anniversary this year, and we’re bringing the celebrations to our Food stores.
Since 2018, we’ve been an Official Community Retail Partner for Coronation Street. This partnership has given us some incredible opportunities to not only feature a Co-op store on the show, but also share our love of Corrie with our colleagues and customers.
Your chance to win an invitation to the Coronation Street 60th Birthday Zoom event
We’re giving ten lucky Corrie fans a chance to win a Zoom call full of fun and games with 5 Coronation Street cast members to celebrate their 60th birthday. If you win, you’ll also get a special hamper to enjoy on while on the call, filled with Co-op festive treats and Corrie goodies
Each winner can also invite one family member or friend to join the call! To tell us more, here’s Anthony Cotton (Sean Tully):
To enter, you have to comment on the competition post on @CoopUK Twitter or Facebook with your favourite Coronation Street moment over the last 60 years. It could be the tram crash that devastated the street 10 years ago, or one of Deirdre Barlow’s many love affairs!
Full details and the T&Cs can be found here. The competition closes on Friday 27 November – good luck!
Bringing a touch of Weatherfield closer to you
You might have already seen and tasted our Coronation Street Coronation Chicken sandwiches available back in September. Did you mange to get your hands on it? It was a tasty blend of British chicken with spiced mayonnaise, mango chutney, spinach and sultanas on onion seed bread.
Since last week, you’ll also find the famous Betty’s Coronation Street Beef Hotpot in stores. Made with minced beef, carrots, onions, swede and peas with gravy and potato, it’s comfort food at its best!
Finally, Coronation Street bags for life are coming back to stores at the end of this month with a limited edition 60th anniversary special! If you missed your chance to grab one back in 2018, now is your chance. But you best hurry, these limited-edition bags will only be sold until December and won’t be sold again!
I hope you enjoy celebrating 60 years of Coronation Street with us.
