Through the results, knowledge is gained about which loyal customer that is created. The empirical data is collected from a qualitative interview and focus groups. Empirical themes has been identified and analyzed in relation to Zygmunt Baumans theory of the liquid consumer society and earlier research within the loyalty field. This approach has generated a new understanding of the modern consumer's loyalty. As a result, three strategies for loyalty have been identified, which has resulted in an empirical finding that Coop has redefined the cooperative. Furthermore, the result shows that the member's response to this can be seen as paradoxical. It has generated a conclusion that a loyalty program is necessary today, but the program's objective to create a loyal customer is at the same time more complex and hard to achieve. (Less)
