Text about the history of the building.

 

The text reads: The premises occupied by this J D Wetherspoon pub were built in 1904 to house the Lenton & Nottingham Co-operative Store. There were various departments – footwear, haberdashery, groceries – with stables and a coach house to the rear.

The Co-operative Movement was inspired by the ideas of Robert Owen, a Welsh born master spinner who set up a model village at his New Lanark Mills in Scotland. The example of Owen’s New Lanark village store led to the setting up of the first Co-operative shop, which opened in Rochdale in 1844, with capital of £1 contributions from its 28 founder members.

All Co-ops were based on the principle of profit-sharing known as ‘the divi’ or dividend). Customers were given tokens or tickets with each purchase, and were repaid a percentage of the money they had spent, the remaining profits being invested.

Early Co-ops also provided an alternative to the ‘tommy-shops’ (company stores) supplying poor goods at high prices. The Co-ops commitment to social improvement considerably benefitted working people in towns and cities throughout Britain.
