Coop Forum is a Swedish hypermarket (combined supermarket and department store) chain. The brand is owned by Coop Butiker och Stormarknader AB, who also run most of the stores. Some stores are run by regional co-operative societies through an agreement with Coop.
The chain was created through the conversion of many B&W, Robin Hood, Prix and Obs! stores into the Coop Forum format in addition to new openings.
The largest Coop Forum stores carry a full hypermarket range including groceries, clothes, homewares and electrical. The smaller stores are more compact selling only a full range of groceries and a selection of homewares. Many Coop Forum stores also have a branch of Coop Bygg attached. Coop Bygg is a small DIY store.

Famous quotes containing the word forum:
“That age will be rich indeed when those relics which we call Classics, and the still older and more than classic but even less known Scriptures of the nations, shall have still further accumulated, when the Vaticans shall be filled with Vedas and Zendavestas and Bibles, with Homers and Dantes and Shakespeares, and all the centuries to come shall have successively deposited their trophies in the forum of the world. By such a pile we may hope to scale heaven at last.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
