Morrisons is nowhere near the state that Safeway got themselves in. Morrisons is a very profitable company, with a large emphasis on vertical integration. The only factors that have cost them in recent years is convenience stores and online...which they are now addressing.
Roll on next year
I personally have insight into the Ocado/Morrisons deal ...and can already see the positive impact it is having on the Ocado side. By the end of next year, Morrisons will have 200 convenience stores and a firm foothold in internet shopping.
They have some great deals on beer, better than Tesco
even though it bought out Safeway years, MRW will end up in the same position within a few years as Safeway. It requires brand reinvention IMO. Fresh food is great but just seems lacking everywhere else.
Aj.....a fellow mrw holder old boy ? Should have a bit more market share when online shopping kicks off And more of the metro stores should help Will be back up to 300 plus next year IMO Gla

Looking at the online offering MRW are proposing it's very hard to see it being surpassed by any one else in terms of speed of delivery from the initial order being sent, the freshness of the groceries, the accuracy of order and the low delivery charges. Add on the door step quality check and refunds etc and you really have an excellent service
