As a member, you have a say in how the Society is run, earn points on your shopping and take advantage of a number of exclusive benefits.

Our Membership Scheme

Each and every member is co-owner of a multi-million-pound business, and has the democratic right to have a say in how the Society is run.

Members are involved in the affairs of the Society at every level, from shopping with us to standing for election to the Board of Directors.

After a qualifying period, every member has the opportunity to exercise their democratic right to influence the way the Society is run, through attendance at members' meetings, approving the level of dividend, voting in elections, and even standing for election.

Being a member brings with it additional advantages, such as sharing in the success of the business through the dividend payout, supporting the ethical and co-operative values that underpin the Society, influencing the distribution of our community fund, and taking part in social, recreational and educational events organised by local member relations committees.
