As a customer, proud member and supporter of the Co-operatives ethics I feel I should express my dismay at the closure of the Hillsborough Co-op store.
I, like many other people have seen this building become stagnant through its lack of ambition and fresh ideas and because of this has ultimately forced its closure.
The staff are to be moved to a new company with terms and contracts intact.
This is not so good news if you enjoy working for the Co-op. I understand some staff have 30 years’ experience within the Co-op and through no fault of their own are to be moved on.
As a loyal and valued customer I’d like to say thank you to the staff who have served me and my family over the years.
It will be interesting to see if the new company has the same loyal and dedicated staff in another 30 years – probably not.
