Well - we originally asked the co-op, and the person on the phone was a bit unsure, then he arranged for a rep to come and visit. The rep phoned and seemed very unethusiastic said he would have to find out more, as he had never dealt with CTFs, and then we never heard from him again! So we decided to do it ourselves.
I have had a few issues with the co-op locally anyway - apart from their appalling customer service, I went in to the food store one Friday afternoon to find a couple of staff members diligently filling up the chilled drinks cabinet with bottles of Buckfast tonic wine - (Scottish based users will know about this) - obviously all ready for the young weekend clientelle. It kind of negated their fair trade chocolate biscuit policy. I complained to a member of the society, but it still happens.
The 2 co-ops are no longer the same business I believe.
Yep thats correct- they aren't the same. I used to work in a local co-op store & it was one of the first things we were told on our staff training. We used to have a co-operative bank ATM & people used to come in & complain it wasn't working & didn't 'get it' that it was nothing to do with us lol
But thats right they are 2 different companies.
