Morrisons to launch convenience stores

Morrisons (LSE:MRW) yesterday bought 49 Blockbuster stores from administration to launch a new convenience line, which they have long lagged behind compared to Tesco (LSE:TSCO).

They’ll now be competing with Tesco in this area, I can’t see this affecting Tesco’s results, however it does add another competitor into this business and reduces the available space for expansion.
