    Both the Coop department stores in Nottingham - Upper Parliament Street have been turned into flats, and the Broad Marsh one has been boarded up, probably linked to the bus station's demolition.

    This is almost into "which company took over your old Woolworths store?" territory back in 2009.

    My local Co-op department store is now a Primark after a time as in independent.

    The superstore near my Mum became an Asda about 5 years ago.

    The Coop (the supermarket side of things at least) seem to be such a low profile these days - pre-Morrisons' national domination (i.e. the north only), the Coop was almost part of the "big four" of British supermarkets. The GNCS in Nottingham was quite huge up to the 1990s and then some Coops superstores closed for good and was sold to independent retailers and the off Tesco Express. On the flip side, a new Coop had opened up near where I live around five years ago and I was one of the first customers who got a free loaf of bread for my troubles - pity it wasn't the brand that I usually use but it was the gesture that counts.

    Whatever happened to Leo's, Pricefighter and other regional Coops which were around in the 1980s, I wonder?

    I can vaguely remember these when I was a kid. There was also a farm and an airport. I think they were bought as a kit of parts and coloured in before they were assembled. They didn't appear to have any connection with breakfast cereal companies.

    I find co-op shops too expensive, much prefer heron or b+m.
    I can't imagine a shop being made from 3d cardboard!

    Most of the co-op shops got closed down in this area during the 80's.

    Oddly my Wife was asking why the Co-op only has small shops these days.

    Iíve seen a few new construction Ďtoysí made out of cardboard rather than plastic .. I think theyíre pointless as they donít look as good , donít Ď playí as well and they certainly wonít last anywhere near as long either

    Thank you. I somehow don't think they were from a cereal packet, but it's not out of the question. We did get Kelloggs. It's also possible they came in some kind of book. I don't remember gluing them together so they probably pushed out.

    Just asked dad,He cannot remember much about them apart from they were purchased as a book,then the parts were either pushed or cut out and glued together. He did say a few naughty words then went on to say that was years ago.

    I know dad made a couple of card models of some Victorian or Edwardian shops in the early to mid 90's.The interiors were very detailed.Especially the butcher shop.

    They may of come from our local museum. I will have to ask him when he's around.
