Morrisons Valentine’s Day OfferThe Grocer

In the run up to Valentine’s Day, Morrisons has bought two thirds of the UK’s retail oysters to sell at 25p. The average cost of an oyster in the UK is £1.59, however the retailer has cut the price of its offering to make the shellfish affordable. The oysters will be sourced from Scotland, and will be available in 492 stores nationwide until 14 February as either single oysters or six-packs. This follows research from Morrisons that showed 40% of Brits have never tried oysters, with one in 10 put off by the price.
