Wm Morrison Supermarkets General Information

Description

Morrison (Wm) Supermarkets PLC is the U.K.'s fourth- largest grocery chain, with a market share of around 10%. The 2004 takeover of rival Safeway transformed the firm in terms of scale and gave it a significant presence outside its base in Northern England. The company operates around 500 stores totalling 1.3 million square meters, entirely in the United Kingdom. The Morrison family still owns around a 10% stake but is no longer otherwise involved in the business. Morrisons has an online presence via a partnership with Ocado and Amazon and has lately been trying to expand its wholesale channel with new agreements (Amazon, McColl's).
