Morrisons scraps window cleaning to save cash as sales decline
Morrisons supermarket has scrapped window cleaning in a bid to slash costs as it battles declining sales.
The ban came into effect last week and is set to remain in place until February. Morrisons blamed the decision on "financial constraints" in a leaked email.
The supermarket is hoping that customers won't notice the drastic cost-cutting measures thanks to the winter weather.
It added that keeping windows cleaned wasn't a priority since the weather forecasts show an increase in snow and fog.
The UK's fourth largest supermarket is under pressure going into the traditionally busy Christmas period after reporting a 2.4 per cent decline in like-for-like sales in the three months to November as it battles discounters Lidl and Aldi.
A spokesperson for the supermarket said the "reduction" wouldn't affect customers during the darkest time of the year and it would only be applied to windows that are not easily seen by the public.
