Co-op hopes to alleviate divorce stress, B&M unveils a food-tasting opportunity and Retail Week shares nuggets from NRF.

Co-op’s digital foray could end in divorce

They are words that have been ingrained into wedding ceremonies for years. But vows of the future might be less “til death do us part” and more “til digital do us part”.

That’s because, having dipped its toe into online grocery ordering after tying the knot with Deliveroo, the Co-op has now launched its first digital divorce service.

Yep – you can now start the painful process of splitting from your spouse with the click of a mouse.

The Co-op’s legal services arm said the service would cut the time it takes to process non-contested divorces by up to a third to less than six months.

Every cloud, eh?

B&M’s food-tasting opportunity 

B&M is seeking an individual who will be worth their weight in food.

The value retailer is on the hunt for nugget connoisseurs to taste its new fresh and frozen range as the disruptor tightens its grip on the grocery market.

In an ad on its website, the value retailer said it was the dream perk for food-loving customers.

“Like a good steak, this opportunity is rare and shouldn’t be diced with.”

The successful applicant will receive £25 vouchers monthly to spend on the new range, which is set to launch later this month, in exchange for their feedback.

It added that relevant experience for the “vacancy” includes “getting the 20 share box of nuggets from McDonald’s and keeping them all for yourself, being the first person in the office kitchen whenever someone says there’s cake and going to an event or party because there is free food”.

Nuggets from NRF 

Retail Week reporter Grace Bowden visited retail technology conference NRF in New York last week.

Her many highlights included the chance to meet the Brother robot, the beanbag chairs, and the moment the Levi’s executive VP compared business to the once-loved hairstyle – the mullet.
