Benefits of being a member

Your membership matters

Being a locally owned, community retailer with a membership of over 120,000, becoming a member of the Channel Islands Coop gives you the opportunity to belong and be part of something bigger.

We are owned by our members, so we focus on providing the products and services that islanders need, rather than the needs of a small group of shareholders.

We are proud to work with local suppliers, charities, and community organisations on a wide range of life-affirming and environmental initiatives. Being an active part of our community, and supporting inclusion and diversity is part of our ethos.

Our membership grows year-on-year, all sharing in our vision to make a real difference to the communities we serve.

Local charities are also part of our membership family. Members donate thousands of pounds each year to charities just by quoting their share numbers when shopping.

Ready to become a member of your Channel Islands Coop?

Membership is open to Channel Island residents, who are over 16 years of age. Membership is subject to completion of our application process and investing £1 to buy your share, means you can become a member of the Society. Your share gives you a say on how the Society is run and how you may receive dividend on qualifying purchases you make in-store, online or when you use our Pharmacy Locale or our funeral services.

A share of the profits

Once you become a member, you will be issued with a share number which you need to quote each time you make a purchase from us.

Estimated dividend is applied on applicable products. A share of profits in the form of dividend is only payable when distributable surplus permits after the completion of each financial year and is recommended for payment by the Board and approved by members at the annual members’ meeting. Past payment of dividend is not an indication that a dividend will be paid in the future.

The trading year ends on the second Sunday in January.

The following are not qualifying purchases, and dividend does not accrue on them:

  1. Gift Vouchers
  2. Guernsey Electricity Key Card
  3. Home Delivery Charges
  4. Lottery Tickets
  5. Parking Paycards
  6. Pay as you go SIM and Top Up Cards (Airtel, JT & Sure)
  7. Petrol
  8. Postage Stamps
