Morrisons & Amazon expands Prime Now grocery delivery service

Morrisons and Amazon have announced today they are expanding their same-day, online grocery delivery service to Prime members - covering most of London and more cities across the UK.

In March this year the service operated from 17 Morrisons stores in eight cities across the UK including Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow.

Both Morrisons and Amazon want to play their full part in feeding the nation, so by the end of May, it will have been extended nationwide to over 40 stores, covering the largest cities. Most of these locations are live today and can be accessed by shopping the Morrisons store on Prime Now – either on the app, or at primenow.amazon.co.uk.

Prime Now customers in over 90% of Greater London postcodes as well as customers in the other ten largest cities by population including Edinburgh, Cardiff, and Bristol will now be able to order their Morrisons on Prime Now and have their goods delivered by Amazon on the same day. Customers can choose from convenient delivery options including delivery at no additional cost within a two-hour window between 8am and midnight.

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 said: “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.”

This is one of many measures that are being introduced by Morrisons in response to the Coronavirus pandemic to deliver essential groceries to customers. Earlier this month Morrisons announced a new dedicated telesales shopping service for vulnerable and elderly people. Customers can place orders with Morrisons over the phone and a delivery will be made the following day by the community champion from their local store.
