Grosmont Co-op has been serving the community since 1867!

Grosmont Co-operative Society Ltd is Britain’s oldest independent Co-op and has been serving the people of Grosmont and the surrounding Esk Valley villages since 1867.

Today, as well as serving these local communities, it has become a firm favourite with the many visitors to the area. The village of Grosmont itself dates from the middle of the 18th Century and the coming of the Whitby to Pickering Railway, and the Co-op occupies a building of this period on Front Street. If you pop in today, you will find that the Co-op stocks a wide range of everyday products with many sourced locally – food and drink for walkers and snacks, groceries, wines and spirits for those who are staying longer. Worthy of a mention is their large range of artisan gins from small batch distilleries across North Yorkshire including the award-winning Whitby gin.

The cost of living crisis has affected everyone hard, and we all need just a little extra help, and that includes the Grosmont Co-op.  With this in mind, the local community has opened a ‘pop up’ shop called ‘The Treasure Trove’ in the former Grosmont Bookshop just a couple of doors down from the Co-op with the intention of giving both the community and the Co-op support during these hard times. Thanks to the generosity of local residents, the shop is brimming with donated goods which are all available for anyone to buy – just call in and you will find pre-loved clothing, household items, bric-a-brac, toys, books and much more. If you are decluttering or have unwanted items at home, please do donate them to the Treasure Trove – all donations gratefully accepted!!

The aim of the Treasure Trove shop is to raise vital funds to ensure that the lovely Grosmont Co-op remains open for all for many more years to come. Please pay a visit the next time you are out and about in Grosmont.  The shop is staffed entirely by volunteers and is open five days a week, Wednesday to Sunday,10:30am to 3:00pm.  I am sure you are bound to find something you just can’t resist!
