British supermarket chain Morrisons and Amazon have expanded their same-day, online grocery delivery service to the latter’s Prime members across the UK. The service comes as Morrisons’ response to deliver essential groceries to customers’ doorstep amidst COVID-19 pandemic.
The expanded delivery service will enable more customers to shop at the Morrisons store on Amazon Prime Now. Customers are able to choose from convenient delivery options at no additional cost within a two-hour window between 8AM and midnight.
Both Morrisons and Amazon want to play their full part in feeding the nation; as such, by the end of May, same-day delivery will be extended to over 40 stores across the UK, covering largest cities. Most of these locations are ‘live’ now and can be accessed by shopping the Morrisons store on Prime Now.
“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,” said David Potts, chief executive, Morrisons.
“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,” added Doug Gurr, country manager, Amazon UK.
In addition, Morrisons has also announced a new dedicated telesales shopping service for vulnerable and elderly people. Customers can place orders with Morrisons over the phone and delivery will be made the following day from their local store.
