The first Morrisons store will open today in St Ouen's village.

SandpiperCI announced a new franchise agreement with Morrisons in February this year, meaning that 16 Food Halls in Jersey will be redeveloped. Ten more will be opened in Guernsey at a later date.

The retailer says they are committed to lowering food prices by an average of 5% per shopping basket.

SandpiperCI also say the new partnership will create 100 new job roles, and the new shops will stock local suppliers' goods, as well as Morrisons own-brand merchandise.
