retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• In the UK, the Telegraph reports that Ocado, which is in business with Morrisons on its e-commerce business, is claiming that "Morrisons.com is the fastest growing online business ever" and that "Ocado has helped Morrisons.com to grow sales quicker than any online company anywhere in the world. From a standing start a year ago, Morrisons.com is thought to now generate roughly £200m in sales."

There have been rumors that because of a top management change at Morrisons, the company might decide to pull out of the Ocado tie-up; Ocado seems to be looking to put that speculation to rest with the new comments.
