About The Co-op

The Co-op is a well known UK brand and its chain of supermarkets were the first to offer a student discount. Here at Save the Student, we campaigned for a supermarket to offer a student discount for a long time now so we were so glad that The Co-op decided to go ahead with one!

However, they've since decided to cancel the student discount in every location apart from Scotland and it doesn't look set to be launched again any time soon.

Without the discount, the retailer is known to be a little more pricey than the regular supermarkets. However, it is worth keeping an eye out for their excellent meal deals.

The Co-op product examples

The Co-op stock everything you’d expect to find in a supermarket, like groceries, frozen goods, wines, spirits and beers. The retailer has its own range of products, as well as stocking items from leading brands.
