The Ecommerce News Roundup – 28 June 2021

The first day of Wimbledon saw Andy Murray seal his place in the second round after a (some-what dramatic) win against Nikoloz Basilashvili. We also witnessed 19 year old Brit, Jack Draper, put on a fantastic show against Novak Djokovic (earning him a standing ovation and showcasing his future potential) and our very own Katie Boutler made it through to round 2 (giving us some hope after Konta was forced to exit).

And there’s been drama at the Euro’s as England secured a historic win against Germany and Switzerland won their match earlier in the week against world champions France. Even for those who don’t like football, this served up some excitement and proves anything is possible!

It may be too early to shout “it’s coming home”, but there’s no place for negativity here, so let’s celebrate success and soak up all the good news that’s still out there!

Talking of good news, here’s your weekly dose of ecommerce stories from the past week.  Enjoy!
