Consensus for merge. -- P 1 9 9 • TALK 03:40, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Lets fill out the United Co-operatives article, and put Normid in context, by copying and pasting (and redirecting) from one to the other. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 07:12, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

I would go with that. Done properly, I think merging the articles would be a good idea Jatos (talk) 18:32, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Citings[edit]

somebody has put citation needed to the statement that cooperative and united coops branding should be confused because they are slightly different. I have to say from existing citations and links, you can clearly see they are slightly different but can still get confused. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jatos (talkcontribs) 18:42, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

I agree.
From what I can see from the Internet Archive of United's site, food stores used a white on blue version of the 1993 Co-op cloverleaf, as did Group food stores. I don't think it is original research to replace the sentence in question with something like:
From the 1990s, United's visual identity was based on the Co-operative Wholesale Society's 1993 cloverleaf 'Co-op' logo.
The photos of United food stores suggest that United fascias had a common corporate style, that can be distinguished from other co-ops on close inspection. This was presumably important to shopfitters and leadership (and to members in areas where United geographically overlapped other co-operatives) I (personally) cannot think of anything truly encyclopedic to say about the fascias. (My brief search did not show me any pictures of pharmacies).
