THE Bromsgrove branch of Morrisons has removed all trolley locks after requests from customers.

A team visited the store, in Buntsford Park Road, to update all the store's trolley fixtures and remove the need to insert a £1 coin or token to release a trolley from a bay.

The removal of the locks follow a national trend by Morrisons, which is removing 150,000 locks at stores nationwide this month.

Jon Deakin, the store's general manager, said: “Our nation is getting busier and we have less free time than previous generations.

“Customers in Bromsgrove have told us that they want a quicker shop. The removal of trolley locks is just one of the many improvements we are making to our store – to make for a faster and easier shopping trip.”

Well that leaves it to the age old problem, lazy people leaving them anywhere particularly car parking spaces and those who choose to take them outside the car parks and finally ending up in the river

I went this morning and they've put those charity trolley coins in each trolley and just removed the chain. Customer requests or is this just cheaper for Morrisons than replacing the locks with new ones that will take the new £1 coin next year? :-)
