The People's Business - 150 years of The Co-operative (c) People's History Museum

This year The Co-operative turns 150.

For 150 years The Co-operative has grown to first manufacture and then to sell products.  Its services continue to support the families and communities of Great Britain and the world ‘from the cradle to the grave’.

This people’s business began its humble origins as the Co-operative Wholesale Society in Greater Manchester in 1863.  The exhibition explores the story and values behind the ‘caring sharing co-op’ and offers a unique insight into the way we shop and live.

Over the Members’ Weekend, there will be a series of events in addition to the exhibition The People’ s Business – 150 Years of The Co-operative to enjoy with all the family.  This includes a number of bookable and drop in events taking place on Saturday 9 November, with some being repeated on Sunday 10 November.
