Having to scan a receipt to exit the self-service checkout area makes me think of IKEA. I wonder if they'll also have a member of staff positioned nearby to bark instructions at any customers who can't work out how to escape.

Now the Morrisons More scheme has come to an end, the app has been renamed My Morrisons. I was busy activating my offers when I spotted some new The Best packaging:

Below is the previous packaging:

The new style seems a bit less Morrisons-y to me.

Wasn't the best logo one of the few remaining bits of Safeway still in use?

It was.

Never a fan of a photograph when you have a clear window into the product itself.

Yes, and revived after a period as Morrisons Signature.

It was! Here's the original (from rdobbie on page 87 of this thread):Image

Sad to see it go after about 20 years on and off. I was just thinking the other day how good it still looks (better than the new one, I'd say). It does look a bit awkward in a stack with the tree logo though.

But the clear window shows the uncooked product, the picture shows it cooked.
Thought this was a nice forum, clearly not.

true, I always thought it was a branding no-no?

I think the issue there is the use of the Since 1899. If they removed that element it'd be more elegant.

Not a fan of the new More card scheme. Can’t be bothered with this opting in to deals faffing that it seems like all loyalty schemes now do.

In other news Morrisons seem to be using a new font (yet another one) for a lot of their stuff. The updated branding for the More card uses it and I’m seeing it on a few things in store too. Not too sure how to describe it other than it’s a bit wobbly round the edges.

Nor me, and having looked the offers are 10% off 3 products I've never bought and have no interest in.
