Morrisons have announced new measures to its online food box service that the chain say will help customers to get a delivery of groceries to their doorstep. 

With demand for online delivery slots increasing across the retail sector, Morrisons have said they will be offering more ways to help customers buy its pre-prepared food boxes. 

The new measures include: 

  • Customers can opt for a weekly, fortnightly or monthly food box delivery so they can receive a regular and predictable home delivery.
