It also reported a 47% drop in half-year pre-tax profit to £126m.
Chief executive David Potts, who started in March, said he regretted the proposed closure of the 11 stores.
“This is a difficult decision but one which we cannot see any way through to make those stores viable,” he said.
It will be sad to see Morrison’s close It’s strange how as it’s kind of busy when I go in. And what about the people who use the cash machine as it’ free and they will have to either pay in the shop or go to their bank just to get money out
For everyone who lives in and around the Morrison’s Store, on Pottery Road, it is due for closure. Morrison’s is a very popular little supermarket and I shop there on a regular basis. I know a lot more of you do too. A lot of people who shop at the Morrison’s store on Pottery Road are very upset about this.
