The Co-operative Group, which recently reported a 9.1% jump in overall sales for 2010, said that its project of putting electrical "pods" in several high street stores has been successful. The company plans to expand the program to more of its food stores in Britain. Through the pods, the retailer offers electrical goods ranging from washing machines to iPods. "The in-store electrical pilots within our food stores are performing well. They add real value and offer a great choice to our customers," said James Holland, managing director of The Co-operative Electrical.
