Browse the Tamworth Co-op’s historic Archive from the 1890s to the present day.

Our archive is a fascinating chronicle of local life spanning two centuries. You can also look back at the fashions and ‘hi-tech’ gadgets of the fifties and sixties in our collection of Co-op ‘home’ magazines.

Founded in 1886, the Tamworth Co-operative Society is one of the town’s best-loved and most iconic businesses.

Today’s Society is also one of the area’s biggest employers, covering a large town centre department store, a modern supermarket, 11 convenience stores and eight funeral service locations. We also operate a garage/MOT testing centre and five post offices. Annual turnover exceeds £20m.

Each strand of our diverse and ethical business remains true to the principles on which we were founded – to combine fair prices with high quality goods and service.

We are one of the last remaining, truly independent Co-operatives in the UK, and are proud of the way we give back to the communities we trade in.

Through our Community Dividend Fund, we hand out a five-figure sum each year to a string of worthwhile organisations in Staffordshire, Warwickshire and South Derbyshire.

The Tamworth Co-op has thousands of members, who enjoy a share of our profits plus numerous other benefits. They play a major part in our success and are greatly valued.
