Collecting dividends

THE Co-op supermarket chain in the UK has been one of the businesses to benefit from the pandemic and lockdown as more and more people have steered away from high streets and out of town shopping centres and now use local stores.

These smaller Co-op stores don’t have huge ranges but stock all of the necessities which means that it can afford to open 50 new outlets during the coming year which will run on renewable electricity and employ up to 1,000 new staff members.
