SHOPPING trolleys are now free to use at Morrisons in Widnes.

The supermarket in Green Oaks Way has removed chains so customers no longer have to pay £1 to hire a trolley.

It follows feedback from customers asking for shopping to be made quicker and easier.

Roy Potter, Store General Manager for Morrisons Widnes, said: “Our nation is getting busier and we have less free time than previous generations.

“Customers in Widnes have told us that they want a quicker shop. The removal of trolley locks is just one of the many improvements we are making to our store to make for a faster and easier shopping trip.”

Morrisons will be removing trolley 150,000 trolley locks from its stores this month.

The company is making a significant investment programme to make shopping trips easier for customers.

Improvements include the redesign of stores, extension of opening hour and improvements to baby change and toilet facilities.
