Coop Norge Handel to be integrated into parent company

Coop Norge Handel AS will merge with its parent company Coop Norge SA during November. The merger implies a consolidation of Coop Norge's core business into one legal entity, says CEO Geir Inge Stokke.

Coop Norge Handel has also incorporated the Norwegian cooperative's DIY store activities hitherto. Members of the cooperative run Coop Obs! bygg building stores, Coop Byggmix shops and Coop Extra Bygg shops.
