About Us

As one of the most successful independent consumer co‑operatives in the UK, we're proud to be able to offer a wide range of services from our family of businesses. You'll see that as a co‑operative, we trade differently from other retailers.

We're owned by our 300,000 members, the people of Lincolnshire and surrounding counties, and have been for more than 160 years. You can click here to see all our store locations.

We recycle ALL our profits locally. We do this by sharing dividend with our members, investing in new and improved services and by supporting local community groups, charities and schools through our Community Champions scheme.

What is a co-operative?

Co-ops are a unique way of doing business!

Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors is made up of members and any eligible member can stand for election to the board.

Executive Leadership Team

Our business is overseen by an Executive Leadership Team.

The team is focused on ensuring the society delivers its purpose of making life better in our communities and shapes our strategic direction.

Our history

It's commonly thought that the beginning of the international co-operative can be traced back to a small building on Toad Lane, in Rochdale.

Our Board of Directors includes directors who are elected from and represent our membership. They work with our Executive Leadership Team to ensure that we are a successful business. In turn, this enables us to continue delivering on our purpose of bringing together ideas, energy and resources to make life better in our communities.


Our purpose is to bring together ideas, energy, and resources to make life better in our communities. We believe the best way to achieve this is by working together. Learn more about Lincolnshire Co-op as an employer.
