Awesome Merch on the BBC: Behind the scenes photos!

Tagged with:


Unless you were living under a rock earlier this week (Tuesday, April 15th to be exact) then you will have either accidentally seen AM on the BBC News or seen us slamming pictures of the heralded occasion across our social pages. To cut a long story short: your favourite merch company was featured on the BBC News at 1 p.m/ 6 p.m and 10 p.m. The news report was all about the economy, inflation, and how we pay our staff above the minimum wage – we pay the living wage. Read up on that here.


At 1 p.m, Luke Hodson was interviewed and talked about our awesome staff! He was also on at 6 p.m, and the video is on iPlayer for a limited time (we start at 13 minutes in). Rad.



At 6 p.m & 10 p.m, they featured Lucinda who’s new to our customer services team.  It was only her second day when they interviewed her. Apparently, she’s had loads of random Facebook requests! Haha! She doesn’t want the personal fame but would love you to check out her band, Heart And Souls.


The rest of the photos were taken whilst Luke was being interviewed. You can see a bunch more on our Pinterest page! Thanks to everyone who got in touch and told us that they saw us on the telly. It means a lot to us because a) we buzz off your feedback and b) It’s nice to feel that we’re doing things awesomely. We care a lot about our staff and we intend to keep treating them well, which in turn means they make a whole world of awesomeness for you.


We’ll try and get the videos from the news online soon!

Thanks for reading!
