In honor of tennis player Andy Murray’s recent victory at Wimbledon, officials at the Morrison supermarket chain decided to do something to commemorate the special occasion. To honor Murray, the chain changed the name of their store located at Wimbledon to “Murriwins” and announced the special event with a post and photograph on Twitter.
Not only did they send sincere congratulations to the newest Wimbledon champion and asked him how he planned on celebrating his victory, they also alerted him as well as other Morrisons customers about their having given the Wimbledon store location what they called “a special makeover” in his honor.
A color photograph accompanying the congratulatory tweet showed one of the Morrison store employees put the finishing touches on a gigantic yellow sign that now reads Murriwins instead of Morrisons.
Andy Murray is the first British citizen to win the men’s division singles championship at Wimbledon since 1936 when Fred Perry captured the title. Among the many Twitter responses posted as a result of Murray’s victory was one from Britain’s Prime Minister himself, David Cameron, who tweeted that all of Great Britain takes pride in Murray’s victory and that he personally felt privileged to have watched the historic event.
