Marmozets want their merch removed from Sports Direct

Sports Direct has been selling Marmozets T-shirts and the band aren’t too happy about it.

Writing on Facebook the band explained “Hi guys – just a quick note from us with regards to some items of our merch being stocked by Sports Direct which you notified us of yesterday.

We realise that for various ethical reasons some of you were disappointed that our merch was being stocked by the Sports Direct chain. Having looked into the concerns that some of our fans raised we are as upset about this as you are.
As a band we certainly didn’t make any direct arrangement for our merchandise to be stocked by the chain and we are making further enquires with our merch company to get to the bottom of how and why this has happened, as well as making immediate arrangements for stock to be withdrawn.

As soon as we get more information we will let you know.
Thanks for sticking with us – Becca, Jack, Sam, Josh and Will”

Sports Direct has been a source of almost consistent scandal over recent years including paying people below the National Minimum Wage and using “Dickensian Practices” at their warehouse in Derbyshire.
