Ashley Murphy’s memorial seat that was out the front of the Big W store will be given back to his family.

Ashley worked at the store and when he died of cancer in 2015, Big W had a chair installed in his memory and in recognition of his avid support of the Essendon football club.  

With Big W due to close in June many people had expressed concerns about where the chair would end up. 

Ashley’s father, Trevor, said he had already picked the perfect place for it and thanked the store for putting the chair at Big W in the first place. 

“This was his number one place. Big W was his life, he loved this place,” said Mr Murphy. 

Store manager, Wayne Murray, said that he was still very sorely missed.
