The Road to the Coronation Starts at Central Co-op

Posted by sam bishop | Published: 12/04/2023

With the Coronation of King Charles III less than a month away, Central Co-op is already making preparations for the weekend of festivities, and from today customers and Members can see plenty of royal offers in stores. 

These deals include 2 for £3 on Irresistible Strawberry Conserve and Irresistible Seville Bitter Orange Marmalade, along with 3 for £3 on the perfect picnic treats, including Jam Tarts, Cherry Bakewells, and Apple Pies. 

Those wanting to bring the celebrations home with them can also purchase fabric bunting and paper cups emblazoned with the Union Flag, at £1.50 per pack.  

Central Co-op is also running a Coronation Stamp design competition, available in stores and on the Central Co-op website, in which royal fans can draw their own stamp to celebrate the crowning of the king, with the winner receiving £20 of vouchers. Stores can also nominate a local good cause in their local area too, with one cause from each of the four regions (North, South, East, and West) receiving a celebratory hamper too. 

More offers can be found on the Membership App, which was launched last month as an easy to use place that contains all Members need in one convenient place, including their card. This will be updated as the coronation comes closer, with further offers and celebrations being available.  

For further details, head to the Central Co-op website, Facebook, and Twitter. Details on becoming a Member can be found on the Membership site
