Melton Mowbray was a branch of the Grantham Equitable Co-operative Industrial Society until February 1894 when the decision was made to break away to form an independent society. The society was a success and by 1915 had a membership of 1370.
In 1969 the society merged with Leicester Society and Market Harborough Society to form Leicestershire Co-operative Society.
