Owner Appreciation Savings: You Pick the Day!
To celebrate the holidays, People's is offering a 10% off Owner Appreciation Discount coupon. Here's how it works:

  1. Pick the day you want to shop for your Owner Appreciation 10% discount between December 1 and December 31, 2016
  2. Once at the register, give the cashier your owner number and Owner Appreciation Discount coupon.
  3. Receive your 10% discount on that transaction.

Important to Know! Your owner number can only be used one time with your Owner Appreciation Discount coupon. If someone other than the primary shareholder (i.e. the person whose name is on the ownership card) uses the Owner Appreciation Discount coupon (for instance a roommate or spouse), that counts as the one time use. Forgot your coupon from the newsletter? Ask any cashier for a coupon! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask any cashier or call People's at (619) 224-1387.
