Amazon and Morrisons expand same day delivery service

Amazon 15th Pennsylvanian facility

Amazon and Morrisons are expanding their ‘Morrisons at Amazon’ store on Prime now to more cities across the UK. It 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.

Throughout 2019, the service will begin to be rolled out to other cities, including Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Sheffield and Portsmouth. In future years, ‘Morrisons at Amazon’ will be expanded to further cities across the UK.

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.

David Potts, Morrisons Chief Executive, said: “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.”
