When you’re part of something different, unique, meaningful, it gives you a real sense of purpose, pride and belonging.
Believing in the value of belonging has shaped our Society since opening our first store in 1919.
It’s why we put purpose before profit every day of the week. It remains at the heart of what we do, today and tomorrow.
Being locally owned we can focus on providing the products and services needed by islanders. We share our success, handing dividend back to local people and reinvesting back into our islands.
We actively look to stock our shelves with local products and are proud to have local producers as partners, in many cases for years and years.
Together, we turn profits into donations, funding local community projects, charities, environmental initiatives and good causes. We help those who help others to transform local lives.
Belonging is everything
Belonging is also about being inclusive, protecting our environment, supporting sustainability, connecting with others, being listened to, investing in regeneration, encouraging the next generation, having a low digit share number and so much more. So, belonging means everything to us.
