Scotmid is a co-operative and we think that makes us different. We're not owned by shareholders - the society is owned by its members and the profits go back into the company in the form of staff training, store improvements, benefits for our members and community initiatives.
It costs just £1 to become a lifetime Scotmid Co-operative member and how far you want to take your membership is up to you. New members get a 'bag for life', as well as vouchers and money off offers to use in Scotmid, Semichem and Fragrance House. Scotmid is owned and democratically run by its members. Members are encouraged to have a say in how Scotmid operates and to let the society know how it can support local communities. You can also attend members' meetings where its one member one vote.
You could even become an active member, which is an excellent opportunity to promote co-operative values and to meet new people. Or you could work up to joining one of the regional committees or even Scotmid's Board. Scotmid's current Board Chairman started off as an ordinary member.
