R U OK? Day 2019

Merlo is once again proudly supporting R U OK? Day on Thursday 12 September.

This year’s campaign theme is ‘trust the signs, trust your gut and ask R U OK?’. The day raises awareness of mental health issues and encourages conversations that could change a life over coffee.

The vision of R U OK? is a world where we’re all connected and are protected from suicide. You can check out their website or the video below for an explanation of their impact and some handy tips to help you start a life changing conversation.



In support of R U OK? Day on Thursday 12 September, all stores will be providing a buy-one-get-one-free deal, through the purchase of any size hot drink, both takeaway and dine-in. This deal will be available over the following periods of time, depending on the store:

Melbourne QVM: 12 – 2pm

All other stores: 2 – 4pm

During this time, you will receive a free hot drink item of the equivalent value of your original purchase – e.g. 8oz takeaway purchased receives a free 8oz takeaway; 16oz takeaway receives a free 16oz takeaway; mug dine-in receives mug dine-in and so on (available for specified period of time on this day only).

Why not get down to one of our stores with a friend, colleague, loved one or neighbour on Thursday and get connected, we’ll see you there!
