The current head office building in Thornbury, Bradford opened in April 2006, with 331,000 sq ft and 1500 Morrisons employees moving into the building. Morrisons began in 1899 when William Morrison opened his stall in Bradford Market. The first Morrisons supermarket opened in Bradford in 1961.
Morrisons, which had previously suffered through being at the bottom of the big four grocers in sales over the holiday period, is now ahead of the pack in the wake of the recent horsemeat scandal. The supermarket chain recently reported an 18% rise in sales at its fresh meat counters and then, earlier this week, saw a tremendous jump in shares on the heels of its new advertising campaign extolling its 100% British beef commitment and featuring popular TV presenters Ant and Dec.
In addition, an unnamed meat lorry driver revealed to Sky News this week that he only shops at Morrisons and Waitrose, saying they were the only stores that performed rigorous checks of shipments. The man said it was a running joke with drivers that it was a "pain" delivering to Morrisons because of the rigorous and lengthy checks, and that the store often turned away items that were felt to be substandard. Good news for Morrisons and Waitrose, but perhaps not so great for the competition!
In any case... oh, look, it's Ant & Dec! Check out the video below:
