I remember going shopping there with my mum in late 1970s, just a few years before Tesco moved into town.  It was a huge shop which sold just about everything.  The Co-op closed around 1987 and the building was used as a carpet shop.  The lower building to the right had lovely old tiles on the floor and beautiful stained glass above the doors and was sadly demolished only recently.

Luckily, the main building has been restored and a brand new building to the right has emulated its design.
