It's Just Not Cricket

A repost which will be repeated every Saturday until the shop stops selling fur

Demo outside the Cricket shopWe like locally owned and operated businesses. We try to support them by shopping there and recommending them to our friends. But what we don’t like is when they sell fur.

In the Cavern Walks is a clothes shop called Cricket who stock the latest fashions (some of the WAG’s have been seen in there), but they also have furs, such as coyote, mink, fox and raccoon.

To get their fur some of these animals are farmed and skinned alive…

Cricket shop in Liverpool Nearly all the retailers has seen sense now and do not sell fur anymore. Fashion wise, wearing fur these days is very unpopular. But there are still some shops that want to profit from this cruelty and try to sell it. In Liverpool, Cricket is that shop.

There have been protests outside the store to alert the public about this and the ScouseVeggie’s want you to join them this Saturday if you can.

The O’Leary clan have been out there (on Mathew Street) the last few weeks and will be there this coming Saturday and any others that they can spare. If you have some time and want to join them… They’ll be there around 12.30 to 3ish. (There will be a demo outside the shop every Saturday until Cricket see sense and stop selling this stuff. )
I believe the theme (to attraction some attention) this week is the 60's, so if you have any sixties fancy dress at home - put it on and get down there.

For more info on fur go to – and

You can contact the shop and let them know what a bad practice this is by writing to:
Justine Mills at 10 Cavern Walks
Mathew Street
L2 6RE

or using the contact form on their website.

If you want to register your protest via the written word please be polite and point out to them that this is very bad form – and bad publicity for them.

    Well, I shop in cricket every single week because I own a 12 bedroomed mainson worth 3.5 million pounds. I think it is a very fashionable shop which sells beautiful products, though I do not buy fur items at all!
