// McColl’s opens 200th Morrisons Daily format store
// The retailer’s store in Stockport was converted to the Daily store
McColl’s has reached a new milestone after opening its 200th Morrisons Daily store following the conversion of a McColl’s store in Stockport.
The new store means local shoppers can access a wider range of fresh food and groceries from new lines and Morrisons’ own-label products.
The store conversion programme recommenced in early February following a scheduled pause over the Christmas and New Year period.
McColl’s has opened 31 Morrisons Daily stores to date in 2022 and will convert a further seven next week with the full support of Morrisons.
“The Morrisons Daily stores are fundamentally reshaping our business into a more profitable and sustainable model in the medium term, as well as providing customers with access to a wider range of products, greater value and a supermarket-quality fresh food and grocery offer,” McColl’s chief executive, Jonathan Miller said.
“It’s been a brilliant effort from the teams of both businesses to deliver this number of store conversions in such a short period of time and I want to thank them and our 16,000 colleagues who have continued to work incredibly hard to keep supplying our community stores with the food, goods and services they need.”
