Before we go into the history and development of Morrisons after the retailer was founded we will
give you a brief introduction into the fourth largest supermarket chain currently on UK high
Morrisons are a Public limited company with the company on the London stock
exchange since 1967, currently listed as a FTSE 100 index company.
The supermarket chain has a market share of 11.8% making the supermarket chain the
fourth largest with Sainsburys with 16% market share, Asda with 16.8% market share and Tesco with 30.9% of the UK
market share, ahead of Morrisons.
The History and Key Facts from
Morrisons was first founded in 1899 by a man called
William Morrison and started of as a small egg and butter stall which was located in Rawson Market in
Bradford. William Morrison’s son Ken Morrison took over the business in 1952 at the age of 26 he later went
onto open a small self service store with 3 counters which was the first of its kind in the United
But Morrisons got major coverage and broke headlines when in 2004 they bought Safeway a UK based
supermarket chain operating over 400 stores across Scotland and the South of England. This was a big move for
Morrisons as it showed there intention of expanding across the UK and wanted to compete at a higher level with the
likes of ASDA, Tesco and Sainsburys. But the takeover quickly fell into problems with the legacy accounting system
being changed six weeks before Morrisons officially takeover which led to financial problems and Morrisons
forecasting huge losses and had to revert to manual account logging.
Many stores were sold off or deals were done with companies like BP, Tesco and ASDA but Morrisons did
retain quite a few stores. With the remaining stores Morrisons converted them to there own Brand and within a few
weeks signs and shopping bags had been replaced with there own brand.
Tip: “Did you know this conversion of stores from Safeway was the
largest in Britain’s history for supermarkets”.
