Co-operative Group

(also the Co-op)
a company set up in 1863 by members of the Co-operative Movement to produce and buy goods, and sell them in special shops. It now has supermarkets all over Britain, and several other businesses, including its own bank, the Co-operative Bank, and insurance services. Members still receive a share of the profits. It changed its name from The Co-operative Wholesale Society in 2001.
