Amazon and Morrisons to expand online grocery home delivery service

Online giant Amazon and supermarket chain Morrisons are expanding the ‘Morrisons at Amazon’ store on Prime Now to many more cities across the UK.

‘Morrisons at Amazon’ is a same day, online grocery home delivery service currently available to Amazon Prime Now customers in four cities: Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, parts of London – and the home counties.

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 service will now be rolled out to other cities, including Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Sheffield and Portsmouth.

Amazon UK country manager Doug Gurr said: “We have greatly valued our relationship with Morrisons since the launch of the Morrisons store on Prime Now in the UK in 2016 and expanding this relationship enables us to offer Morrisons’ high quality grocery selection to even more Prime members.

“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.”

Morrisons chief executive David Potts added: “Morrisons’ conveniently located local supermarkets and Amazon’s very popular website and customer offer are an ideal combination, offering ultra-fast same day grocery home delivery for customers in and around cities across Britain.

“Amazon has been a valued partner of Morrisons for over three years, and we are pleased to be expanding our relationship together. Continuing to partner with the best digital operators such as Amazon is a significant, capital light growth opportunity for Morrisons.”
