Unicorn Grocery

Unicorn Grocery is an award-winning cooperative grocery in Manchester.

Twice named ‘Best Food Retailer’ at the BBC Food & Farming Awards, we offer our Manchester customer base an unbeatable range of affordable, fresh and nourishing food with an emphasis on organic, fair-trade and local produce.

Unicorn was established in 1996 by a small group of people committed to social change, who had a vision for the kind of place they wanted to shop in themselves. A place where a really wide range of wholesome, tasty food, sourced with care, would be sold at affordable prices. A shop owned and run by motivated worker-owners following a shared social and environmental agenda. A friendly, diverse and welcoming space that would act as a hub in the community.

Although we’ve grown a lot since then, those things remain true today. We’re proud to have proved that a worker-owned business with values can compete with national chains and provide a genuine alternative to the supermarket, and we’re now more or less the size of one.
Co-op members still aim to run the kind of shop they love shopping in. We hope you enjoy it too
