Morrisons slashes prices, but fails to find its niche

Morrisons had an awful year, last year and they've decided to fight the discounter with discounts.  Unless they can undercut retailers like Aldi and Lidl that spend far less on their shop fits and staffing their stores, then they may struggle with this strategy.

It's the 2nd from last sentence that highlights a real need for expenditure-

"A lack of online and convenience store presence has also left the business exposed"

There's plenty of vacant High Street property out there for Morrisons to kill both birds with one stone.  Open convenience stores with online terminals for Click & Collect customers.  It will get them back on a par with the big boys, rather than trying to fend off the discounters snapping at their heels.
