The one at the bottom of Fielding lane was never a coop, I lived nearby on Hornby St (as did your dad and family) - it was a privately owned grocery

Well I'm wrong. Wasn't there a few shops? I can remember two being there, besides the one actually on Fielding Lane.

an ironmonger(where chippy is now)
a clogger/shoe repairs(in a hut on the side street)
I dont remember a baker, but the smell of fresh bread was about because of the Continental Bakery (where garage is now)

I've had to phone my Ma up for confirmation that there was a Co-op on Catlow Hall Street, and she said there definitely was. She used to push me in there in my pram, and once took back some spuds back because they were bad, and was given a refund by the bald headed manager.

She also remembers getting Co-op stamps in there. It was on the opposite corner to where the chippy is, attached to what's now the garage, and they now make conveyer belts in there.

Incidentally what's now the garage used to be Continental Bakers, and before that it was the Co-op bakery.

Other small Co-ops in Ossy were over the West End, up New Lane, over on Harvey Street, and the one up Stanhill, which is now the first house up after the James Hagreaves memorial gardens.

I also had to listen about what became my Dad's old disco being the old Co-op shoe shop, across the road being the Co-op hardware shop, managed by Tony Perkin's mum. As well as the grocers, tailors, furniture store and butchers, and the function room, which were all part of the main Co-op building.

I deserve a 'divvy' for having to listen to all that.

Oh finally, there was another Co-op in Ossy, in what's now the Furniture Clinic.

Re: Does anyone remember in ossy

That coop must have arrived after I left in 1961
My memories are from 1942 - 61 (before your arrival )
But I do remember it as a bakery before it went Continental - I recall watching the big dough mixing/kneading bowls in use - the workers let a few kids in to watch.

That did cross my mind.

We lived in my grandparent's old house from '63-'67 before moving up Stanhill.

Re: Does anyone remember in ossy

I've mentioned earlier that at one time Ossy Co-op paid out the biggest dividend in the whole country.

My grandparents used to tell me tales that 'divvy day' was like the Wild West, with people staying off work, and running up the road to spend their share of the Co-op's profits in one of the town's many pubs...if they hadn't signed the pledge.
