Supermarket giant Morrisons has further cut prices in another effort to win back customers amid discounter competition.The big four are still locked in a price war as they face continued pressure from discounters such as Aldi and Lidl. Morrisons has cut the price of 135 products from today, including flour and oven chips, with prices falling by an average of 14%.Earlier this month Morrisons’ former chairman Sir Ken Morrison criticised the brand’s performance and, at the annual shareholder meeting, Sir Ken likened the plans of chief executive Dalton Philips to the manure produced by his herd of cattle.Sales downturnMeanwhile, last month its like-for-like sales fell by 7.1% in the 13 weeks to 4 May – a decrease that will negate the impact of its new stores. In March it announced a £1bn investment on cutting prices, developing a loyalty scheme and improving its own brand goods over three years.Discounts were introduced in May as part of that campaign, but today’s price cuts are part of a separate move and affect different product categories.Morrison’s chief executive Dalton Philips labelled the discounts as “permanent” and advised that they would not be the last.
This is the first time that the World 100-kilometer running championship is being held in Croatia, in which more than 350 ultra marathoners from over 40 countries are participating.If we add up the escort of marathoners as well as the entire accompanying organization, Terme Sv. Martin filled its accommodation capacities in two / three days. An excellent example of the development of sports tourism and how the tourist season is extended, although in Međimurje there is no tourist season, but the tourist year, ie tourism lasts 365 days a year./ / / WILL WE FINALLY TURN SPORTS TOURISM FROM POTENTIAL TO A RESOURCE?I constantly emphasize that for the development of sports tourism, we must look at the bigger picture and focus on “small” sports, and not just football, and immediately “shoot” the biggest clubs. It is interesting to mention that Terme Sveti Martin is also the first RUN HOTEL in the world, which is mostly due to the cooperation with Berislav Sokač, the initiator of the project RUN CROATIA, so this championship is just a proof that Međimurje offers its visitors really excellent conditions for various outdoor activities.”The projects we have organized so far in Croatia have been done extraordinarily, with a large number of participants, and Croatia has really top athletes and runners. We are here for a reasonSaid Nadeem Khan, President of the International Association of Ultra Runners.Levels of performance are crucial and imperative, and without high quality preparation and organization, let’s not even dream about organizing such events. Indeed, in strong competition in Europe, we must always give a step higher and better, to attract runners, and with the beautiful natural and all other tourist trump cards, we just have to nicely round out the whole story and offer it to the market.Međimurje on the moveThat Međimurje is a popular tourist destination is also proven by the figures, which show an increase of as much as 16% for the first eight months of this year compared to last year.Along with additional indicators of the success of Međimurje as a tourist destination, they were presented by Sandra Herman, who on behalf of the prefect, the county and the Tourist Board wished everyone a warm welcome to Međimurje. “Međimurje is presented as a tourist destination under the slogan “Međimurje on the move” – this gives a lot of space for sports facilities, but also space to get to know the continental tourist destination that has a lot to offer. Croatia is known as a land of sea and sun, but this event will introduce the world to Međimurje, whose tourism is on the rise.. “Pointed out Sandra Herman from the Međimurje County Tourist Board.”Considering who is currently with us, we are certainly a real sports destination, and we will try to make such events popular in Croatia. We have secured the infrastructure, closed the road and I invite everyone to visit this important event“Concluded Branimir Blajić, director of LifeClass Terme Sveti Martin.By the way, over 50 million people in the EU regularly run, and their annual consumption is estimated at 9.6 billion euros. Smart enough. This is only a small part of the mosaic of the sports and tourism story of Međimurje, and cyclotourism should certainly be emphasized as Međimurje is among the three most developed and highest quality cycling tourist destinations in Croatia with the market recognizable brand Međimurje Cyclist Welcome Region.RELATED NEWS:CROATIA’S FIRST IN THE WORLD GETS RUN FRIENDLY HOTEL CONCEPT – RUN HOTELBERISLAV SOKAČ: I WANT TO BRING A PART OF 50 MILLION RUNNERS TO EUROPE IN CROATIACROATIA WINS FIRST RUN FRIENDLY HOTEL
Victory against Greece on Thursday would seal Northern Ireland’s place at their first major tournament since the 1986 World Cup and their first ever appearance at a European Championships. Northern Ireland currently sit top of Group F, four points clear of third-placed Hungary and needing only two points from their last two games, the last away to Finland, to qualify. “I can’t even imagine what it would be like,” Taggart said. “Nobody deserves it more than the Northern Ireland fans, they’ve been through a lot and their home and away support has been unbelievable. “They know how to rock a stadium. They’ve waited almost 30 years for a major tournament and the atmosphere will be unbelievable on Thursday if things go to plan. “Just you watch in France, there will be green and white everywhere. We’ll be taking over any part of France we play football in.” It has been a remarkable campaign for the team and Taggart, who played 51 times for Northern Ireland, believes O’Neill could have a shot in the Premier League once his time with the national team is over. “He has to take massive credit, it’s absolutely huge what he’s achieved so far,” said Taggart, who was speaking at the filming of the Vauxhall Home Nations Football Show. “He doesn’t get a lot of attention but the majority of these players have been playing for eight, nine years and somehow he’s turned them around and got form from them. “I don’t see any reason why he can’t get a job in the Premier League. “It’s happened to previous managers. Lawrie Sanchez did well for Northern Ireland and then picked up a Premier League job with Fulham. “So there’s no reason why Michael can’t go on to bigger and better things too if he wants to dip his toe back into club football.” Northern Ireland have lost only once in their eight games so far and remain unbeaten at home ahead of Thursday’s crunch match in Belfast. Greece lost the reverse fixture 2-0 in October last year and Taggart believes securing qualification at Windsor Park would be the perfect way to finish. Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill should be a target for Premier League clubs if he leads his side to Euro 2016, says the country’s former defender Gerry Taggart. Press Association
