Co-op society stores (Kuwait)
Co-op society stores are department stores put up by the Kuwaiti Government. Comprising 70% of the retail trade in the country, the legal basis for consumer cooperatives was established in 1962 with law No. 20. By the start of the 1980s, Kuwait's cooperative movement became open to Arab and international cooperative movements, and the Kuwaiti Union for Cooperative Societies sought membership in the International Cooperative Alliance as of March 1981.
