It all starts by shopping with us…
You may or may not know that co-operatives are different, unlike other businesses we’re not run by a few wealthy shareholders. We’re owned and run by our members, local dividend card holders and every penny of our profits goes back to them and their local communities. It’s free to join us and there’s lots of benefits to being a member, here’s our top five.
Reason one – earn as you shop
Every member holds a dividend card and each time they shop with us, they earn a percentage of what they spend back, which they can spend in our stores.
Reason two – a bonus just in time for Christmas
Towards the end of each year we pay out a bonus to all members from our profits. It’s a percentage of the total amount of dividend members have earned over the year, so the more you’ve spent the bigger your bonus will be. You can save it up and spend it whenever you like. We have food stores, travel branches, a florist and more, plenty to treat yourself.
Reason three – doing good in your community
We run a scheme called Community Champions where every members dividend card is linked to good causes close to where they live. The more our members shop and use their dividend card, the more money we give to their champion. It’s an easy way for you to make a difference in your community.
Reason four – keeping healthy
We offer free health checks at our pharmacies. They only take around 15 minutes and can ease the pressure on GPs and give you an early indication of serious conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
Reason five – be part of something special
We’re really proud of the uniqueness of our co-op. We’re independent and successful; everything we do is for our members and the communities we work in. By shopping with us you can be safe in the knowledge that we’re committed to ethical principles important to you such as Fairtrade, sourcing produce locally and supporting local people, this is what we call the co-operative difference.
With so many reasons to be a member, we can’t think of a good reason not to join us. Pop into your local Lincolnshire Co-op outlet today and ask for an application form or download one from our join us page here.
