Morrisons Daily stores offer a wider range of products compared to McColl’s stores. which McColl’s says has driven more customer spend, frequency and loyalty.

In its interim results, McColl’s estimated it could convert six stores per week into the Morrisons Daily format and said it was on track to complete 100 by the end of this month. .

McColl’s chief executive Jonathan Miller explained: “Within 12 months we will have 450 stores open and trading as Morrisons Daily, representing over a third of our total community store estate and over half of our sales,”

“These stores have a higher grocery mix and wider breadth of product choice which is great for our customers, and with strong sales growth and better return on investment, it is great for the company too. We look forward to continue working closely with Morrisons in the years ahead.”
