Memories of the Mansfield Co-operative Society

Former Co-operative Grocery Warehouse situated on Victoria St.Mansfield

Taken from one’s collection the former Mansfield and Sutton Co-operative Grocery Warehouse situated on Victoria Street, Mansfield. It stood there for many years serving the Mansfield and Ashfield customers. During the 70’s it became, due to a merger with the Worksop Grocery Society the Mansfield and Worksop Co-operative Grocery Warehouse.

Within the area of the Warehouse Grounds the Society proved Coal Deliveries also to the areas for the Mansfield area folk and did so for many years. Late 70’s one thinks it joined forces with Nottingham based Greater Nottingham Society and became The Greater Nottingham Grocery Warehouse.  A basement, Ground Floor (loading bay)also a First floor and a Top Floor. Sadly the building is no more and as Society’s merged and Society’s were taken over it became a building of which was used by other companies.

The Society during those years provided a Transport Dept; / Garage section over the road from the Warehouse with full time drivers and mechanics. Not forgetting the Grocery Warehouse Staff .
