Re: How should one pronounce 'Coop'?

Nope. In my area we also have a coop where the Pope hopes to scope and possibly grope a new telescope although he'd cope with a cantelope too.

Re: How should one pronounce 'Coop'?

in ticino it's usually cp (closed sounding o), in italy cp (open o like cop policeman), both with a longer o than the normal single o.
the one in losone is still called cattori (it was an independent supermarket with a very strong brand in the region).
