A few thoughts:

  * The co-operative -> Co-operative - As others have said, we should
    keep the definitive article.
  * Cotswold Outdoor -> Cotswold - My local store and their website
    refer to the company as "Cotswold Outdoor" so it would be wrong to
    change it.
  * Would it be worthwhile expanding this proposal to also cover the
    brand tag?
