The Old Co-operative in Belper, home to our businesses; Cocoon Vehicles Ltd and High Heel Creative Ltd was built in 1927 by the Ripley Co-operative Society, but we don’t know much else about the building.
We’ve heard various stories from Belper residents, where they used to come for their groceries when it was a Co-op store but thats about it.
We do know that Brian and June Nix of Lester & Nix in Belper purchased the building in 1985, where they set up Trade Services repairing household appliances and televisions.
We’d love to find out more, if anyone has any old photographs of the building, externally or internally or even further infomation, we’d love to hear from you.
