Grosmont Co-operative Society Ltd. is the oldest independent co-operative in Britain dating back to 1867. The Co-op continues to thrive thanks to the support of the locals and tourists alike and from rental income via the Crossing Club, David Edge Model shop and Grosmont Bookshop; all outlets originally trading areas of the Co-op when it originated as a Department Store but now leased as an income generator.
The Co-op is run by a Committee of volunteers who are all local to the village with a paid front house team who pride themselves in offering a wide variety of locally produced and sourced goods. The shop stocks everyday essentials for locals but also meets the needs of visitors and walkers on the Coast to Coast.
The shop staff are keen to listen to villagers′ requirements and will source products offering the personal service that the shop was based on historically. The shop has also gained a good reputation for being the supplier of a variety of Yorkshire distilled gins at competitive prices.
So help keep the Co-op tradition alive.....pop in for a pastry, sandwich, hot drink, fresh fruit and veg, a loaf....the team will make you feel very welcome!
