The Co-operative Group has completed the transfer of 30 Alldays stores to Oxford, Swindon & Gloucester Co-op.

So far, seven stores have been refurbished to OS&G’s Swift Shop format and two to its Village Store format, with all 30 due to be rebadged by summer.

Sales uplifts at refurbished stores have been very encouraging, said OS&G Co-op group general manager, retail, Bill Laird.
