William Morrison Supermarkets announced that shoppers who patronize its Safeway stores - which it acquired last month after a long battle - now are paying 24 percent less their groceries each week than before Morrisons bought the company.

Much of the decrease comes because of a series of price cuts that Morrisons announced after the acquisition, which it said would make the prices at the two chains relatively equal.
