MORRISONS are increasing their hygiene standards as part of a new programme.
This will see all of their 494 stores -- including the supermarket in Airdrie - receive a three-week deep-clean, brand new equipment, and additional cleaning staff.
This investment is to ensure that customers feel safer in their store, and follows the supermarket chain already spending £25 million on in-store safety measures.
These include Perspex screens, PPE for colleagues and floor markings and visible signage.
More than 2200 brand new cleaning roles will be created across the country to ensure Morrisons foodmakers can concentrate on making fresh quality products for its butcher, baker, fishmonger, deli, greengrocer and florist departments.
New Welcome Cleaning Stations are also being fitted at all store entrances providing antibacterial wipes for baskets and trolleys, as well as hand sanitiser.
Jayne Wall, operations director, said: “The hygiene within our stores has become more important than ever due to the impact of Covid-19.
“We want to make sure our customers feel as safe as possible when doing their grocery shopping with us. So we've made this multi-million-pound investment to introduce first class hygiene procedures.”
