Co-operate has been a long time coming, but it's here now - are you ready?
Nathan Brown of Olmec won the Co-operatives Fortnight Check-in Challenge using the Co-operate app. Checking into five co-operative stores, nath_brown tweeted photos to @CooperativesUK account, of the outlets he visited and promoted to his Twitter followers.
Nathan chose to spend his £50 voucher at October Books, based in Southampton.

'Co-operate has been a long time coming. As long as I have been actively involved in promoting and developing co-operatives, one of the great "wants" has been a way to enable us to maximise our spending within the movement - creating a virtuous circle. "Wouldn't it be great if we had a directory?", "Does anyone know if there is a co-op nearby that does......?" Well now it is here. Co-operate is easy to use. I hit the button on my smartphone and it tells me where the nearest co-ops are, in order of how close they are. Or I can search by the services/products they offer, again the results being returned in order of how close they are. So, when I needed a bank, Co-operate led me to the Co-op down the road from work. And if you need to check any more details like opening times, a phone number or email address enables you to contact them.
