MORRISONS supermarket customers in Chester, Ellesmere Port and Neston can now do their full food shop on Amazon.

The three areas are among the latest 15 cities and towns across the UK where the new 'Morrisons on Amazon' service is being launched today (October 1).

The tie-up means Amazon Prime members can enjoy free same-day delivery on Morrisons food shop orders over £40.

The new partnership was launched last month and comes as demand for grocery home shopping has increased during the coronavirus pandemic.

Doug Gurr, Amazon UK Country Manager, said: "The launch of Morrisons on Amazon means an even greater choice for our customers in Chester.

"Bringing together Morrisons’ fantastic food with Amazon’s fast same-day delivery offers the best of both worlds to our Prime members, all at no extra cost."

David Potts, Morrisons Chief Executive, added: "Morrisons on Amazon will build on our partnership with Amazon, making our good quality, great value food even more accessible through and the Amazon app.

"It will give more customers across Chester the option of receiving Morrisons groceries straight to their doorstep, including freshly prepared products from our brilliant Market Street colleagues."

Prime members will benefit from Amazon’s fastest grocery delivery offer, usually as fast as same-day for orders placed before 9pm in most areas.

As well as free delivery in two-hour windows, Prime members in the area can now choose delivery in a one-hour window on all orders over £40 for a delivery fee of £3.99.

Orders are hand-picked from local stores by dedicated Morrisons staff and delivered to customers by Amazon Flex Delivery Partners.
