Is the old one. Good idea I think.
Like a good new old logo. Big fan of North American sports teams doing it.
'it's nice but a bit boring'
is it worth joining the co-op?
which is ludicrous.
but by the end of the year theyre going to relaunch the membership scheme.
it costs a pound. for this, you become part of the co-op. its not like clubcard etc.. you get to vote on the boards decisions at the AGM etc so can shape the way the co-op is run.
then as a member 5% of the value of co-op branded goods will be put onto your card (so money off your next purchase etc), plus 1% will be put into a pot to go towards local community projects, which youll be able to choose from.
On top of this you have the general idea that the co-op is not your standard business model.. so any 'profits' are either going to be invested back into the business, to help reduce costs, go towards more sustainable/nicer production methods etc or be invested in charity/community projects.
By the end of next year I think the plan will also be to reintroduce the dividend payments - which as you own part of the co-op through being a member youll be entitled to (again itll be a small percentage of what you've spent in the co-op, will be given to you at the end of the year, as a voucher to spend in store/on co-op products/community projects)
Put simply I think co-ops are a better way of doing business, and everyone should be involved. and to pre-empt people saying theyre shit.. become a member, vote and inform the leaders of the changes youd like them to make. this is something you can do in a co-op that you can't do in any other business (well not for only £1).

this is what its going to be like, weve just had the AGM and theres no divi again this year so TBH theres not THAT much incentive to sign up yet
but imagine hiring a design company to redesign your band, and they come back and say "er we dug around a bit and we found yr old one and thought it was pretty neat. yr welcome."
might give it a go when they bring it back. not got a big co-op nearby, mind.
Just a bit too chunky
Also should've kept the dark blue imo
Were handing out vouchers today, a quid off food if you spend a fiver.
I miss the old Co-op, straight from the 'Go Co-op
Chop up the soul Co-op, set on his goals Co-op
I hate the new Co-op, the bad mood Co-op
The always rude Co-op, spaz in the news Co-op
I miss the sweet Co-op, chop up the beats Co-op
I gotta say, at that time I'd like to meet Co-op
See I invented Co-op, it wasn't any Co-ops
And now I look and look around and there's so many Co-ops
I used to love Co-op, I used to love Co-op
I even had the pink Polo, I thought I was Co-op
What if Co-op made a song, about Co-op?
Called "I Miss The Old Co-op," man that would be so Co-op
That's all it was Co-op, we still love Co-op
And I love you like Co-op loves Co-op
so that you can just see the strip lights underneath. it looks amazing like that they should change to that all the time
