Morrisons looking to grow in-store services by linking up with Timpson

Morrisons has announced a tie-up with Timpson as part of efforts to extend the range of services available at its stores to drive footfall.

Under the agreement Timpson will take over the running of Morrisons dry cleaning operations at 116 stores and will expand the offer to include key cutting, shoe and watch repairs as well the fast growing areas of phone and tablet repair.

The outlets will be branded ‘Timpson at Morrisons’ and further units will roll out in Morrisons stores as they receive a refit under its current Fresh Look programme.

Roger Fogg, Director of Popular and Useful Services at Morrisons, said: “This partnership will mean that customers will find more popular and useful services at Morrisons stores. This is a way of growing our offer that is both capital-light and simpler for our colleagues.”
