I can rest easy now the Co-op number is back in my brain. But tell me, someone, of what monetary (or other) was the divvy actually worth?  If I ever knew, I've certainly forgotten that!

No idea, but it was certainly worth giving the number for each purchase, and Mum was always glad when the 'divi' was due.  I will have to investigate.

Not sure of the actual amount given but they changed it in the late 60`s to stamps. I think they were blue ( a bit like green shield stamps). But Nan said it helped towards Christmas !!

Oh gosh, I had forgotten about the change to the stamps.  I think that must have been around the same time as the co-op changed to self-service. Yes?

OMG..... I thought I was odd by remembering mum's divi number (255715). It's so funny how we remember something so inconsequential 50 odd years on
