I don't think so - they're expanding in the area and I can't think of any branches that have closed lately.

That is new EPOS equipment anyway, Co-op seem to be switching to Windor Nixdorf (or Diebold Nixdorf as it is now) from the existing IBM kit, but running the same software.

Central England Co-op are also moving away from IBM to HP for their EPOS systems.

I've observed it in multiple branches, including brand new ones. There is a white on blue version too. It appears to be a placeholder when they are missing a slide to display. Presumably baked in to the software in some inconvenient way.

Southern Co-op have just renewed their EPOS (again) and now run "VME Intellistore" instead of the previous EPOS (Retalix Storeline I think) they have only run for about 3/4 years. From looking at the customer display it looks like a step back in time than advancing technology.

From what I understand "InControl-Evolution" is co-op's in house EPOS system.
