Morrisons expands Prime Now offering

UK grocers Morrisons has announced it is offering its same-day grocery delivery services through Amazon Prime from a vastly increased number of stores. Residents of much of London and other major cities are to receive the service.

As of March the Morrisons/Amazon Prime offering was only available from 17 Morrisons stores in eight cities that included Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow. The delivery service is now to be extended to more than 40 stores across the UK at the end of the month to include Leeds and Sheffield.

The service is offered through the Prime Now website at no additional cost to Prime members within a two hour window between 08:00 and midnight.

David Potts, Morrisons Chief Executive said: “Expanding this fast home delivery service to more cities will help us to play our full part in feeding the nation. Through our conveniently located stores and the popular Amazon Prime Now service, more and more customers will be able to access deliveries to their doorstep at this very difficult time.”

Meanwhile Doug Gurr, Amazon UK Country Manager said: “We are pleased to be able to support more customers through the expansion of Morrisons on Prime Now. The convenient service enables us to offer Morrisons high quality grocery selection to even more Prime members.”
