“We are delighted to announce Stratford Retail Group's strategic partnership with Morrisons to roll out Morrisons Daily stores at our newly acquired MPK Garages portfolio of Forecourt fuel/retail sites.

Last month, our newly established venture Stratford Retail Group acquired MPK, a top-10 UK independent forecourt operator which operates 29 forecourt fuel/store sites in the Midlands. Our strategy is to create a world-class retail operation by converting most of the sites to Morrisons Daily stores over the coming months. We will be investing across the portfolio to create retail destinations.

A big congratulations to Paul Kershaw, our Managing Director and Stratford partner Nerissa Haskic on reaching this milestone - now for delivery!

Lots more exciting news to follow shortly." – John Stewart
