Major improvements have taken place at Kirkham’s Morrisons supermarket.

The store, off Poulton Street, will offer customers a refurbished cafe.

The way customers use cafes has changed and we have responded to that

The new eatery will offer visitors more healthy eating options and provide more modern surroundings.

Store manager Martin Wood hopes the refurbished cafe will allow customers to take a break after their shopping trip and catch up with friends.

New features include casual dining tables and chairs, soft seating and sharing tables; a new menu with a greater focus on fresh food and moveable seating to allow buggies and wheelchairs to be wheeled up to tables.

Traditional favourites such as fish and chips will still available on the menu, but a range of new low-calorie meal options including fresh salads have been added.

More of the fresh ingredients will come from Morrisons Market Street fresh food aisle

Mr Wood said: “The way customers use cafes has changed and we have responded to that.

“Today’s discerning shoppers want healthy meal options and an environment where they feel comfortable alone or with friends or family.

“The new concept builds on the formidable reputation our cafes already enjoy.”

Meanwhile, Morrisons in Cleveleys has announced it is to launch the Nutmeg clothing range at its store on Amounderness Way.

The clothes for babies and children will be available from Thursday with the launch of the spring collection.

Paul Day, store general manager, said: “Every parent should be able to buy good quality, fashionable and durable clothes for their children at a price that is affordable. Nutmeg also comes at pocket friendly prices – so you won’t need to worry about it being a burden on your budget.”

Last week the supermarket giant announced a loss of £792m after it wrote down the value of its store estate in the face of tough market conditions.

The struggling chain also highlighted another year of falling sales as underlying profits – excluding the £1.3bn one-off property hit – fell 52 per cent to £345m in the year to February 1.
