Speaking about Craig, an M&S spokesperson said: ‘He started creating videos for the store’s Facebook pages and uses TikTok to create and edit videos.
‘Our stores across the UK created Facebook pages this year so we could communicate with customers on a local level about our amazing products, and this year’s Christmas range is better than ever with benefits like Scan & Shop (Craig’s famous video!), and reassure customers that it’s safe to shop at their local M&S.
‘Through the Longbridge Facebook page, Craig and his colleagues can speak to local customers in Birmingham – the people who they see every day and have come to know so well.
‘Our customers love to see colleagues creating fun content – we all need a bit of light-hearted relief at the moment. Our colleagues bring posts to life with their passion and enthusiasm, they’re often dancing and singing and much more, and Craig has been a shining star within this channel.’
