NHS workers can now get a 10 per cent discount at Morrisons stores as the supermarket giant continues to support them through the coronavirus pandemic.
From today, the ‘thank you’ offer to NHS staff – many of whom are working beyond the call of duty – comes into effect at all stores throughout North Staffordshire and the UK.
Morrisons has branches in Festival Park, Newcastle, Leek, Cheadle, Congleton, Crewe, Nantwich and Stone.
To claim the discount on their shopping, NHS workers must present a valid ID card.
The discount will be valid for the next 12 weeks, before it is reviewed on July 12.
David Potts, Morrisons chief executive, said: “This discount is our thank you to all those working in the National Health Service at this very difficult time.
“We are giving them our full support and gratitude as they continue to care for and support the nation during the Covid-19 pandemic.”
The discount is the latest measure introduced by Morrisons in support of NHS workers battling on the front line against coronavirus.
The supermarket also introduced:
- A dedicated NHS Shopping Hour at the beginning of every day from 6-7am, and 9-9.30am on Sundays, to make sure NHS staff can get hold of the groceries they need.
- NHS Food Boxes – a click and collect food box service from hospital car parks to give NHS staff easy access to essential groceries. The click and collect site within hospital car parks makes it easy for staff to pick up their groceries after their shift has ended. It will be available in 22 hospitals this week with more to come.
