Today, a South West London branch of Carphone Warehouse has pulled a switcheroo, going beyond a usual day’s work of helping customers switch to the best phone and network, and undergoing an Australian cricket green and gold makeover, to celebrate all things switching

Supported by former Australian star-batsman Michael Slater in celebration of the summer of cricket. The store, in London’s Australian hotspot Wandsworth, has been newly re-named “Carphoown Weyarhouse” by Australian-phonetics expert Dr. Adam Chong. The ‘switcheroo’ comes ahead of the team’s first cricket match against Afghanistan on Saturday. Having beaten the current favourites, England, in their warm-up game, Carphoown Weyarhouse has switched to support the better side.

Reigning World Cup champion Australia is the ‘best’ cricket team to back for a win and is part of Carphoown Weyarhouse’s “Switcheroo” campaign celebrating a dedication to securing the ‘best deal’ for customers looking to get the best mobile contract for them and save money.

The Australian switch continued in-store with a personal appearance from ‘Baggy Greens’ cricket legend and campaign supporter Michael Slater; a themed-selfie corner; a selection of delicious treats from Down Under (Lamingtons anyone?); staff in Aussie team-colours – a g’day all round for all!

Australian cricket legend and Switcheroo campaign supporter Michael Slater said: “I’m stoked to be helping Carphoown Weyarhouse pull a Switcheroo. As a proud Aussie, I love that the English are switching allegiance to supporting the Baggy Greens this world cup. They’re onto a winner!”

Shoppers and sports-fans wanting to check out the special-edition ‘switcheroo’ store in person should act quick – the Switcheroo takeover is set to last until Wandsworth store-closing time on 1st June 2019. Online, Brits will notice a social media takeover across Twitter and ‘Facey‘ too.
