Morrison (Wm) Supermarkets PLC operates as a food retailer. Its main business is food and grocery distribution under the Morrisons brand. It operates approximately 498 total stores.

Founded by William Morrison in 1899, Wm Morrison Supermarkets is the U.K.'s fourth-largest supermarket chain, with a market share of 11%. The 2004 takeover of rival Safeway transformed the firm in terms of scale and gave it a significant presence outside its northern England base. The company operates around 500 stores totalling 1.3 million square metres, entirely in the U.K. The Morrison family still own around a 10% stake but are no longer involved in the business. Morrisons has an online presence via a partnership with Ocado.
