Membership of Wooldale Co-operative Society

Benefits of becoming a member

For just £1 you can become a member of Wooldale Co-operative and accumulate dividend on every purchase you make at any of our three stores. Over time these can add up to a tidy sum which can be withdrawn on application to the Society (e-mail

If you decide to invest more in the Society then interest is paid on your investment which can be up to £20,000 and withdrawn subject to the Rules of the Society (see ‘Investing in Wooldale Co-operative Society’ below). As with all investments, they can go down as well as gain dividend.

Our members are vital to the survival of the Society and you will be supporting our local community if you join us.

As a member, you can help decide what products and services we provide - just ask to talk to the store manager.

Members also have the opportunity to get involved in the running of the Society. We are always looking for new board members and application is very easy. Full training is provided so no experience is required; just enthusiasm and support for the co-operative values and principles.

Join the Co-operative movement  along with 15.1 million others in the UK alone, and become part of a £37 billion economy. By 2013 there were 6323 co-operatives in the UK and in the period 2009-2013 the co-operative economy grew by 13.5%, compared to 6.6% GDP growth.

Start your own co-operative; if you have an idea for a product or service that is relevant to our local community and fulfils a social or environmental objective, why not try the co-operative approach? We can discuss your project with you, help you access support, and even help you ‘incubate’ your co-operative before setting up your own premises and organisation. We have done this for the Fair Traders Co-operative in Holmfirth. Just e mail  for a confidential discussion with a Board member.

Members Events

Our member services team organise, or are involved in, a number of events each year and members are always welcome to get involved. (see coming soon)
