Morrisons at Amazon is another exciting joint opportunity and makes Morrisons’ good quality, great value-for-money products available to even more customers.”

In order to be entitled to the new delivery system, customers need to pay £79 a year to become a member of the Amazon Prime service, they also have to live in one of the eligible postal code areas.
