In May 2012, local supermarket group Harry Tuffins sold its stores to the Midcounties Co-operative Society. The Competition Commission was none too happy with the deal and some stores were transferred back to Tuffins. But Ludlow’s Foldgate store remains in Co-op hands. From Monday, you will be able to use your co-operative membership cards at Tuffins and accumulate points towards an annual dividend. That’s paid twice a year or you can donate it to charity. If you are not a member, you can sign up in the store right now or online.
