After shoppers discovered the pockets were used to display the team member’s name tag, the worker said there was another hidden purpose for the clear pockets.
She claimed there was a second “secret compartment” in the pocket which contains a small notepad unique to each Bunnings store.
“Name badge yes, but we have a name pad for each store,” she said in the video.
In the footage, you can see Team Member Bunnings pull out the green notepad from the hidden compartment.
She added: “I’ve worked in probably eight Bunnings stores in my eight years, and I’ve always had one.”
Bunnings fans were excited about the easy-to-miss detail after Australian comedian Luke Donkin popped the question in a recent viral post on TikTok last month.
“Honestly, I have no idea what this pocket is for,” he said.
“I’ve always wanted to put a trail mix in there and then just (move to eat it) throughout the day. But I’d probably be in trouble.
At the time, it was confirmed that the clear pouch was used to hold the staff member’s name badge.
But just when you think you know all there is to know about the front pockets of Bunnings staff aprons, there seems to be yet another twist.
While another worker pointed out that there was yet another secret compartment.
“My apron has three pockets over there…you showed two,” they said.
