Trolley locks axed to make trips quicker

A supermarket in Lutterworth is to remove locks from its trolleys to make trips easier and quicker for shoppers.

The town’s Morrisons, in Bitteswell Road, has decided to get rid of the locks in response to customer feedback.

It will remove the need to insert a £1 coin or token to release a trolley from its bay.

A team visited the store on Sunday to update the trolley fixtures.

Graham Pye, the town store’s manager, said: “Our nation is getting busier and we have less free time.

“Customers in Lutterworth 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.”

Morrisons is aiming to remove 150,000 locks from its stores nationwide. It is also planing to upgrade baby changing and toilet facilities.
