More co-op-ery

Next to the first Co-op premises on the corner of Commercial Street and Albion Street there is an archway then a substantial mill-like building. It was actually the warehouse for storage and distribution of goods to the branch shops. The last use for it was as a fitness club (currently empty) and the basement (& an annexe) are a bar called Stush (until recently known as the Townhouse).

The carved stonework above the main entrance has the beehive logo, along with two corner roundels; one of  scales and the other a handshake (& what looks like a heart above) denoting fairness and cooperation.
