My friend works at Co-Op, I am applying for a job there, would it be fine to give my friend my application to give to someone or would it be better if I just did it myself? Or wouldn't it make a difference?

I'd do it yourself: you want to be assertive like that, and also you may meet someone who will have a hand in judging your application, as it may be a good opportunity to build a positive impression

I think it would be a lot better if you did. The employer there probably would think you have a lack of confidence.

Definitely go in yourself!
In retail, an employer wants to hire someone who is confident and asking a friend to give in an application does not portray that. I think people sometimes underestimate the importance of creating a good first impression when handing in a CV or application - I've thrown them away immediately if the person did not give off a good enough 'vibe.'
Maybe it would be a better idea to ask your friend to recommend you after the application has been handed in.

Hand in the application yourself, like everyone said, if you hand it in yourself, it'll create a good impression and in retail people are looking for someone who is confident
