The concessions will sell The Original Factory Shop’s range of bargain-based clothing, electrical and homewares and will also offer a party shop service and click and collect.
The move forms part of Co-op’s work with partners to create additional services in store.
Mark Matthews, director of innovation and format, Co-op, said: “Co-op is committed to operating at the heart of local life and creating value in our communities – we are working to develop new ways to provide added services and choice, conveniently.
“The Original Factory Shop compliments our fantastic range of food, groceries and every-day essentials. It attracts new and different customers and supports our work to create a compelling offer to serve our members and customers locally.”
Phil Briggs, managing director for The Original Factory Shop, added: “We’re really excited to be working with the Co-op.
“It marks the coming together of two great community retailers and is testament to the importance of convenience stores and the role that these shops play in local life. It means that many local communities will get to discover The Original Factory Shop’s great bargains in a whole new way.”
