retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Yahoo Finance reports that Amazon plans to expand on its relationship with the Morrisons supermarket chain in the UK, expanding their “Morrisons at Amazon” delivery service to “cities like Glasgow, Scotland, and Liverpool, England … The service is currently available for Prime Now customers in Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and some parts of London.”

The story says that “the latest partnership extension of Amazon with Morrison bodes well for its focus on the European grocery space. Apart from this initiative, the company teamed up with Casino Group’s subsidiary — Monoprix — last year, which enables it to offer its food products and other grocery items via Prime Now app to customers in Paris and its suburbs.

“Per latest talks, Amazon is willing to expand its grocery delivery service in France on the back of its Monoprix partnership.”
