From today tens of thousands of our colleagues will be receiving their new membership cards. This is the next big step for the Co-op as we prepare to send the card to more than 5 million members in the autumn.
The 5% for you and the 1% for your community, when you buy Co-op products and services, is the most significant change to our membership for decades.
We’ve been working hard over the last three years to rebuild our Co-op. This Rebuild phase comes to an end in 2018 and then we’ll bring back the much loved ‘Divi’ too, sharing our success with you, our millions of co-owners.
Co-op Food, Co-op Funeralcare and Co-op Legal Services are all included in the new 5 + 1 member rewards. Co-op Insurance will join later next year.
We’re sending our colleagues the new card ahead of our wider membership so they’ll be familiar with how it works and be ready to explain it to you, our members and customers, from the autumn.
So to our colleagues, enjoy using your new card and tell us what you think, and to our wider membership, look forward to the autumn!
