Co-operative SocietyEdit

The village was the base of the Wooldale Co-operative Society, a small consumer co-operative. The Society operated three convenience stores in the Holme Valley one in Wooldale and the others were in the villages of New Mill and Thongsbridge. The Society was founded in 1886.

The Society was a member of the CRTG (Co-operative Retail Trading Group) and a corporate member of the Co-operative Group. It had agreements with the United Co-op and later the Co-operative Group for stock distribution and promotions.

In 2017 the society was taken over by the Central England Co-operative Society.
