Founded in 1899 by William Morrison, hence the abbreviation Wm Morrison, it began as an egg and butter stall in Rawson Market, Bradford, England. Until 2004, Morrisons store locations were primarily focused in the North of England, but with the takeover of Safeway in that year, the company’s presence increased significantly in the South of England, Wales and Scotland. As of 2016 the company had 498 superstores across England, Wales and Scotland, as well as one in Gibraltar, which is the chain’s only store outside of Great Britain
As of April 2019, Morrisons employs 110,000 employees and serves around 11 million customers each week.
