Morrisons signs nationwide agreement with Timpson

The Morrisons supermarket chain is to partner with shoe repair and key cutting firm Timpson to extend the number of services available at its stores.

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 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.”

James Timpson, Timpson chief executive, added: “Through Timpson at Morrisons we will give shoppers our full service offer, from key cutting to mobile phone repairs, while they shop. We’re also looking forward to making our great value dry cleaning service available to new customers in even more Morrisons stores.”
