Ilkeston Co-operative Society was a consumer co-operative society based in Ilkeston, Derbyshire.

By 2006, Ilkeston had created one of the largest independent travel companies in the UK, operating 42 branches throughout the East Midlands and South Yorkshire. It also operated a department store, two bedding stores, a banqueting suite and two car body shops, having sold its car retail business to United Co-operatives in 2004.

In August 2006, directors of the Society outlined plans to merge with the Midlands Co-operative Society. [1][2] Following two members' meetings in September, the two societies merged in November 2006. The newly enlarged Midlands Society has retained the name 'Ilkeston Co-op Travel' for the travel business, given its prominence.
