Countrywide is proud of its heritage and recognises the loyalty shown by many thousands of Shareholders to the Countrywide business over the years.
As recognition of this loyalty and confidence in its business the company is proud to offer a Shareholder Privilege Card. This entitles those Shareholders with 3000 Countrywide shares or more to obtain a 5% discount on any retail product purchased in any Countrywide Country Store. The Card can also be used to shop on-line at www.countrywidefarmers.co.uk provided you have pre-registered your email with Countrywide by contacting Group Services.
Participation is a strong principle which underpins Share plc. There is a significant mutual benefit to be gained from creating an environment in which there is a significant overlap between customers, shareholders and employees, resulting in a virtuous alignment of interests which benefits all.
To that end, from July 2012 Share plc offers an enhanced the shareholder benefit so that holders of 500 or more Share plc shares will enjoy a 30% discount on all deals transacted online through their accounts with The Share Centre. This reduces their minimum dealing commission to £5.25, one of the lowest rates in the market.
