About Food

We’ve been serving the people of Essex for over 150 years, so

 we may well have helped your ancestors with all their local shopping needs.

In all that time, we’ve provided a friendly service and offered everything you’d expect from a convenience ‘top up’ shop, and more. We still operate to the same Values and Principles as the founders of our Co-op Society did, believing in fairness, equality, and doing things the right way.

In our stores across Essex, you’ll find a wide range of goods and services – from bread baked in our own bakeries, locally produced and grown food and drink, fresh produce and a selection of ranges for different dietary requirements. We offer long opening hours, a wide range of additional services (including post offices and a petrol station), ethically sourced and environmentally friendly products, and fantastic offers.

Our stores also offer The National Lottery, The Health Lottery, Collect Plus for parcel delivery, and PayPoint to enable you to pay your utility bills. We also offer mobile phone top ups and postage stamps.
