Morrisons has extended its discount scheme for NHS staff, teachers and Blue Light Card holders in an effort to thank them during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The 10 per cent discount means key workers can use it throughout the festive season and into the new year.
Morrisons said it has made it easier and quicker for NHS staff and teachers to redeem the discount following feedback from key workers.
- Tesco and Morrisons ignore calls to shut stores on Boxing Day
- Sainsbury’s and Morrisons commit to repaying business rates relief
They can now join the More For NHS Club or More For Teachers Club and use the Morrisons More Card app at the till.
Blue Light Card holders still need to present their card at the till of any of Morrisons 498 stores in order to receive their discount.
“As we approach the Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations, we want to continue to support those that have gone above and beyond their usual roles this year, often in exceptionally difficult circumstances,” Morrisons chief executive David Potts said.
“This discount is a thank you for all that they have done and continue to do for us all.”
Morrisons introduced the first ‘Thank you’ discount in April to NHS staff alongside a dedicated shopping hour from 6am – 7am (Mon – Sat).
The service has since been extended to include teachers and their support staff as well as emergency service workers via the Blue Light Card.
Additionally, Morrisons is also continuing to offer a five per cent discount to its 2700 farmers to thank them for feeding the nation through the Covid-19 pandemic.
