Sorry but my experience of Somerfields offers are they generally only put a handful of items out at a time (if at all) as a red herring to keep people coming into the store. I quote the infamous turkey crown saga and you start to get racked off looking for the non existent items. If you live local, it's fine but my store is 7 miles away.

If I ever manage to buy a Somerfield bargain I'll vote hot, until then I'll vote the same as their empty fridges

Certainly nothing like that in my local store, offers are usually excellent, to be fair it is the only reason I still use the place, without the offers, the place is very expensive, so it is a mater of shopping cannily- although they have a habit of over-charging on offers, where the system forgets to deduct the discount eg. on bogof items!

I was in my store on Thursday and there was plenty then - of course lamb is a bit past it's cheapest level this time of year, it's not long since it was about £4.25 to £4.50 per Kg in Somerfield offers, but I suppose £5 is good for the present.

Somerfield have certainly improved from when they first took over from Safeway. I think their offers are excellent and there is ALWAYS plenty of stock in my store! Voted hot :)

Eh?

Morrisons bought out Safeway!
A few stores had to be sold off to prevent local monopolies for the company, and I think a few closed altogether.

The Coop now own Somerfield.

Pure semantics now though.
Should all be done in about 4 weeks - All agreed and OK-ed by OFT etc. and offloading of stores to other retailers has even been agreed. It may well be sometime before the name disappears too, as there are a lot of stores to cover - it took Morrisons quite some time to re-brand all the Safeway ones, can't see this will be much different.

Can't see me shopping there then without a major change of their policy - Coop food shopping (on the odd occasions I have been in areas where it exists, as there is currently none near me now, just small convenience stores) is so scarily uncompetitive as to leave me wondering why they are not intending to retain the Somerfield "front" so as not to scare off customers too soon! Shame, it is my easiest to get to large supermarket :-(

Change to thier policy?!?!?! If the Co-operative desided to change thier policy away from the ethical stance that they have currently I would no longer shop there! I do not mind paying a *little* bit more for better quality and peace of mind that the product I buy have less of a negative impact on the world.

Unfortunately not all of us have the luxury of being able to afford ethics, and having a conscience costs money. 15 years ago? Maybe.
Shopping for all groceries at Coop prices (as I find when occasionally on holiday in North Yorkshire where that is the best local choice) would easily put 30 or 35% on my groceries expenditure, which is beyond the amount of "slack" I have in my finances! Quality of life in big cities is not wonderful, but access to discounted groceries is good!

Now, while I draw the line at knowingly supporting major genocide and hell on earth, I still find I have to buy goods from the likes of China, and any number of everyday players in global misery like the USA and South Korea for fear my own grotty little existence would be even worse.

Love it or hate it, the exploitative nature of Captalism produces cheap goods.

Besides, so few countries or the major organisation's activities are ethically "sound" in even the vaguest terms, it is not only cost but sheer impossibility to find an alternative! :-(

If the Coop disappeared, then what company WOULD you be able to choose to shop with? I can't think of an alternative on any big scale!

If a Cooperative disappeared I would purchase from whichever co-operative took over. Co-operative is a business model (like PLC, Ltd, Partnership, Sole Trader etc)rather than a company name. You will find that the Co-operative that you shop in will actually be called the Co-operative Group, Midlands Co-op, Heart of England Co-operative etc. You tend to find that if one of the Co-operative get into financial trouble then one of the other ones step in to help
