UNITED Co-operatives' Ramsbottom store has played host to a visit by Co-operative Society members from right across Europe.
The group were all delegates attending the European Regional Assembly held in Manchester as part of the three-day Manchester Co-operative Week.
Managers from United Co-operatives were on hand to answer questions about the store from the group who had come from a number of countries including Russia, The Czech Republic, Greece and Cyprus.
The trip round the store followed a visit to the Co-operative Museum in Rochdale.
United Co-operatives Regional Operations Manager Stephen Hall said the society was delighted to play host to the European delegation.
He said: "It's a great opportunity for our guests to experience the early days of the Co-operative Movement and then find out more about a modern and successful store."
