Morrisons to roll out same-day delivery with Amazon to dozens of new stores by the end of the month
Morrisons is expected to roll out the same day delivery service it runs with Amazon to dozens of new stores by the end of this month.
The supermarket will extend the Amazon Prime partnership to at least 40 stores – up from 17 in March.
Locked: Customers Turned To Online Shopping To Avoid Going To Stores
This happens when customers have turned to online shopping to avoid entering stores during the lockout. Many have also placed orders for a large weekly store, rather than purchasing fewer items more than once a week.
Morrisons is expected to announce expanded collaboration with Amazon in conjunction with its first quarter results tomorrow, the Sunday Times reported.
Analysts estimate that sales at Morrisons stores that have been open for more than a year increased 4.5% between January and March – but costs also increased with the hiring of 3,500 people.
