We're proud to have been chosen as this year’s winner at the Retail Industry Awards.
We were commended for our strong financial performance that saw us increase sales by 9% in the 12 months to the end of March. Online sales tripled during the year, with capacity up five-fold, and our same-day Morrisons on Amazon service rolled out to some 50 towns and cities. We were also recognised for demonstrating a future-thinking approach with a deal to supply the new Amazon Fresh stores, while continuing to develop our wholesale business.
One judge commented, "Morrisons had a very good year in terms of online, particularly building that partnership with Amazon and it probably did more than anyone else to increase online capacity."
Another quoted, "It did a lot of creative stuff around the pandemic, including food boxes and telephone ordering for vulnerable people. It pushed ahead with things like store openings and its Market Kitchen initiative – which is a really excellent food service concept that can be used as a footfall-driver for its stores. Everyone should be applauded for their efforts during the year, but for me Morrisons was the stand-out."
