Wooldale Co-operative Society a Local Business
Wooldale Co-operative Society operates three stores in Wooldale, New Mill and Thongsbridge offering good value, ethical and local products.
It is completely independent and is owned by its 2500 or so members living in the surrounding area, and run by a voluntary board of directors.
The business is mainly funded by members who receive an annual dividend based on their purchases in the stores and interest on their investment at a competitive rate, currently one percent above the Bank of England base rate.
We employ about 40 local people, and quite a few of these are school leavers for whom it is their first step on the employment ladder.
We are very proud of our friendly and helpful staff, many of whom have been with us for quite a few years. We think they make a vital contribution to making the Society a real part of the community and our members friends rather than just customers.
We also own the old library above the New Mill store which is currently the Valley Pharmacy.
The field behind the Wooldale store is being leased to the Holme Valley Gardening Network and has been converted to a successful allotment project.
