Morrisons and Amazon extend same day delivery

,

Morrisons and Amazon are extending the same day delivery service “Morrisons at Amazon” to more cities, including Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Sheffield and Portsmouth.

Doug Gurr, Amazon UK country manager, said: “We are committed to growing our grocery business so that we can continue to deliver what we know our customers will always care about – low prices, vast selection, and fast delivery – and our relationship with Morrisons is an important part of that long-term growth.”

The service is already available in Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham and parts of London.

Customers can order a full Morrisons shop online, which is then picked at a local Morrisons store, and delivered by Amazon. The option for delivery within one hour of the order being placed is available for many customers across these cities.

The expansion will see Morrisons becoming a retailer on Amazon’s Prime Now website and app, through ‘Morrisons at Amazon’, and selling directly to customers. Morrisons will continue as a wholesaler for all Amazon’s other UK grocery offers for customers.

Morrisons chief executive David Potts said: “Continuing to partner with the best digital operators such as Amazon is a significant, capital light growth opportunity for Morrisons.”
