The Northern Co-operative Society building, Loch Street
The Northern Co-operative Society (Norco) opened for business in a small shop in the Gallowgate in 1861, and in 1905 these larger premises became their HQ. By 1920, their name had been changed to the Northern Co-Operative Society. The building covered an extensive area between the Gallowgate and Loch Street, and this photo shows the Loch Street entrance to the Arcade which gave access through the building and to the Gallowgate. The 'Coopie' provided many people with all their requirements supplying clothes, shoes, groceries, milk, meat and coal. When the NCS opened their new HQ in Norco House in 1970, this building was vacated and stood empty until it was demolished as part of the redevelopment of the area for the Bon-Accord Centre.
