A SUPERMARKET is to open special lanes for mums on Mother’s Day.

Morrisons Bolton, on Bury Road will open mums-only checkouts to help speed up their shopping, and checkout assistants will also entertain children, asking them to identify products and see how tills operate.

The move follows research by Morrisons which revealed that 37 per cent of mums will visit a supermarket on Mothers Day.

Julie Thomson, store manager at Morrisons Bolton, said: “The reality of Mother’s Day is that some mums end up doing lots of chores. So, for mums who shop with us we want to serve them better by creating a ‘Mum’s Lane’ checkout.”
