The Moulton Co-operative Society Limited, or simply Moulton Co-op, was a small regional consumer co-operative in the United Kingdom. The society was formed in 1861 and operated a single supermarket in Moulton, Northamptonshire. In January 2009, members voted overwhelmingly to transfer arrangements to Midlands Co-operative Society, which took effect on 8 February 2009.[2]


The Moulton Co-op was one of the last single store societies in the Midlands region, following the mergers of Desborough, Ilkeston and Raunds co-ops with the Midlands Society in recent years. John Mitchinson became Chief Executive of Moulton in 1986, serving until the merger.[2]


  • Stocks Hill, Moulton, Northamptonshire

2009 Revamp

After Midland Co-op took the company over the store was re-vamped. It was set to be re-opened on 26 August 2009.
