Here at the Heart of England Co-operative Society we’re passionate about delivering food excellence in a convenience store environment. We know what our customers want and we’ve got a huge appetite to bring our compelling offerings to more locations across the areas we serve and beyond.

Convenience retailing is changing and our new store refits are indicative of customers ever-changing habits, with particular focus being on creating ‘Your Community Store.’ This vision allows us to tailor our stores to what that particular community needs, whether it’s a bigger ‘food to go’ area or a launderette!
