The East of England Co-op has partnered with The Phone Co-op, which is 100pc owned by its customers, to bring its customers the first co-operative prepaid mobile service in the market.
Co-operative Mobile ‘Pay As You Go’ SIM cards are now available for 99p in East of England Co-op supermarkets in Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk where they can also be topped up by cash or credit card.
Roger Grosvenor, executive officer – Retail, for the EDP Top100 company said: “This is the first time we’ve offered Co-operative Mobile SIM cards in our stores.
“It’s a truly co-operative product that will give our customers a better alternative and features highly competitive national and international rates, honest pricing and extensive UK coverage.”
Nearly 1,250 people, including more than 100 in the East of England, have been made redundant following the appointment of administrators at Unipart Automotive, one of the UK’s largest independent suppliers of car parts.
