Morrisons has begun creating new seated areas in its stores as it encourages weary shoppers to “stop and rest”.
A table with chairs will be introduced in stores, along with a sign that reads: “Please feel free to take a break from your shopping”.
Morrisons confirmed the change on social media site X.
They posted “Need to take five? We’ve put seating areas in our stores for anyone needing a break mid-shop. Sit down, have a chat and take as long as you need.”
A spokesperson for the chain said it had made the change after feedback from customers asking for a place to stop and rest during shopping trips.
One shopper posted a picture of the new rest area after they spotted it in the supermarket giant’s Belper store.

This is not the first time the retailer has made changes to their stores to accommodate shoppers.
In November 2021, Morrisons began introducing “quiet hours” in its stores.
It means noises such as music and other sounds are kept to a minimum.
