More than 14,000 Countdown employees are being offered shares in the company.
The offer comes from Countdown's Australian parent, Woolworths, who want to recognise their efforts and acknowledge their role going forward.
Eligible full-time employees will receive $AU750 in shares.

He says shares are a long-term investment and people will receive dividends.
