Morrisons is preparing to scrap home deliveries from 50 of its supermarkets as online demand subsides following the relaxing of pandemic restrictions.

The supermarket giant has launched a consultation with 1,400 staff over the proposed changes. Affected employees will either be moved to new roles at their store or offered voluntary redundancy. 

Like many of its grocery rivals, Morrisons rapidly scaled up its online business during the height of the pandemic to cope with surging demand, at a time when many shoppers were unable to leave their homes.
