TEACHERS and school staff in Oswestry will be entitled to a 10 per cent discount on their shopping at a local supermarket.

Morrisons has launched a nationwide campaign, running from Monday, November 2 until after Christmas, allowing school staff to claim back 10 per cent discount on their shopping at stores nationwide.

The special discount is a thank you to teachers and additional school staff who are looking after the nation’s children and supporting them through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Primary, secondary, private and special educational school teachers can all claim the discount, as well as all teaching assistants, catering staff, dinner ladies, caretakers, cleaners and school office staff.

David Potts, Morrisons chief executive said it is important to thank school staff who are facing challenges during the pandemic.

He said: “Teachers and school staff are facing many challenges and the education of our children has never been more important.

“This discount is our way of saying thank you as they continue to care for and educate our kids.”

These groups will also be able to participate in a dedicated shopping hour alongside NHS workers from 6am to 7am from Monday to Saturday before stores open to other customers.

Morrisons also offers a 10 per cent discount for NHS staff which was introduced in April.

Teachers and school staff can claim the 10 per cent discount on their groceries by presenting their school photo ID card at the till in any of Morrisons 498 stores from Monday.

The discount cannot be used with a purchase of alcohol, drugs, pharmaceutical products, infant milk or formula, tobacco and is not available online.
