    Still think East of England Co-op staff were sold down the Swanee. Your caring, sharing Co-op shafted everyone good and proper

    Well spotted Anna! The date of incorporation is given as 6 July last year though – while that is two days after the former East of England Co-operative Society stores passed to Vergo, it may just be coincidental timing. To be honest though, I’d have thought another David Thompson buyback is very unlikely.

    Could Vergo owner be about to buy back some of the stores.

    He has another Vergo company registered at the same address
