Bunnings' cheeky move after Harry Styles rocks iconic item on stage

A quick search for 'Harry Styles' on the Bunnings website directs shoppers to the fan-favourite item – which many fear will now be sold out.

Harry Styles sent crowds into a frenzy on his Australia tour when he sported an iconic Bunnings straw hat that was thrown to him on stage.

To the delight of fans, the pop singer caught the hat as it was thrown to him and put it on as he danced before the crowd.

Bunnings was quick to notice its iconic hat on the pop star and posted the clip to its TikTok account.

“You realise that they're going to sell out now,” one user commented – which led to Bunnings' next move.

Another TikTok posted by Bunnings showed a screen recording of its website with someone typing in “Harry Styles” in the search bar. And of course, the first item to appear was the large straw hat.

Aussies got a kick out of the video, with many saying the change had been made to the Bunnings app and website in New Zealand too.

“So real for this Bunnings,” one user said.

“Well played Bunnings well played,” another commented.

Bunnings praised for app changes

Bunnings recently announced a new feature that would deliver an improved shopping experience for thousands of customers, with the addition of a new “sensory maps” option.

The new features promised to make shopping at the store more accessible for people with sensory processing issues.

The maps can be found in the store locator section of the Bunnings website and detail areas where customers may encounter bright lights, loud noises and strong odours.

The new feature was designed in collaboration with Amaze, a non-profit that supports individuals with autism and their families.
