Morrisons and Amazon expand grocery delivery service
Morrisons and Amazon have announced that they are expanding their same-day, online grocery delivery service to Prime members, which now covers most of London and more cities across the UK.
Morrisons plans to expand the service, that initially operated from 17 Morrisons stores in eight cities across the UK, to over 40 stores nationwide.
The Prime Now service can be accessed via Morrisons’ stores, using the app, or at primenow.amazon.co.uk.
Customers can choose from different delivery options, including delivery at no additional cost within a two-hour window between 8am and midnight.
Feeding The Nation
Commenting on the expansion, 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.”
Doug Gurr, Amazon UK country manager added, “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.”
The expansion of the home-delivery service was introduced by Morrisons in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, to enable the retailer to deliver essential groceries to customers’ homes.
Earlier this month, Morrisons also announced a new telesales shopping service for vulnerable and elderly shoppers, whereby customers can place orders with stores by phone, with a delivery being made the following day.
