UK: Morrisons to cut 30 in-store florists as it looks to trim costs

Morrisons will cut 30 of its in-store florist stations as it looks to slim down costs. The supermarket chain, which doubled its number of in-store florist branches during lockdown, said the service in some locations were no longer commercially viable.

The impacted stores will now have their flower bouquets supplied by a centralized service in the Midlands, The Grocer reported.

Morrisons said the sales had dried up in many stores since the pandemic and had also been impacted by the rising cost of living.

However, the supermarket chain added it would still have 160 in-store florists nationwide, and any staff impacted would be offered to transfer elsewhere in the business.
