The retailer, which operates the AHF superstore and Westgate Department Stores, sells beds, sofas and bedroom and living room furniture.

Anglia Co-operative has made initial approaches to agencies to invite them to pitch for the business.

The retailer also has an online store,, which launched in 2008 and competes with the likes of Furniture Village.

The move follows the separate launch in January of Co-op's wider review of the agency roster that handles its £50 million advertising spend. Co-op's roster agencies include the lead creative shop, TBWA\Manchester, and its media planning and buying agency, Rocket.

The Anglia Regional Co-operative Society is the fifth-largest consumer co-operative in the UK with more than 80 stores.
