The Times and Dyson vacuums
« on: November 29, 2023, 12:17:10 pm »
Hi,

I’m a journalist at The Times and I’m writing an article about Dyson vacuums and how they became such a status symbol and synonymous with luxury.

I’m particularly interested in how and why Dyson vacuums became so popular among younger people today, who seem to count having a Dyson as among those status symbols like having an iPhone etc.

If anyone on this forum would be interested in speaking to me about a)why Dyson vacuum cleaners are better than others and B) why they have transcended household appliances to status symbols then please do get in touch!

Feel free to call me on [redacted]

N.b. The piece is going on Saturday, so if you are interested in speaking then please do get in touch as soon as you can!

Thanks,
Tom Saunders

Would we, as the largest independent Dyson specialist in the North, get a mention as a source of a quote?  ;D

Well, we got our brand quoted incorrectly, but any publicity is good publicity I suppose.  :coffee:
