Countrystore card

HAMPSHIRE-based co-operative SCATS is launching a customer loyalty card today (Friday), similar to those operated by supermarket giants, Tesco and Sainsbury.

The Account Plus card offers the societys 9000 account holders a standard 1p in the £ bonus on all purchases in its Countrystore retail outlets. The points accumulate and will be credited to each account at the end of the financial year.

The scheme does not replace our established system of year-end bonuses to members on purchases of feed, fertilisers or chemicals. But, unlike these payments, it does not depend on the companys financial performance.n
