The Show goes on at OTR

South Australians may not be able to attend the Show this year, but the Show will go on at OTR with shoppers able to experience a little bit of show magic by picking up a favourite showbag from their local OTR store.

From July 29, a range of iconic chocolate, confectionery and novelty showbags will be sold across the network of OTR stores, thanks to a partnership between OTR and Bensons Trading’s Showbags, one of Australia’s leading Showbag suppliers.

Regional visitors to the Show won’t miss out with regional OTR stores from Mount Gambier to Renmark and Port Lincoln to Port Augusta, selling the show bags.

From fans of the teenage wizard Harry Potter to Pokémon card traders, and those with a sweet tooth, there will be a showbag for everyone at an OTR store, with other themed showbags including the popular Paw Patrol, Warheads, Caramello Koalas and L.O.L.

Confectionery showbags will be priced at $5 and Novelty showbags selling for $30.

Darryl Cotter, OTR General Manager Operations said “we are excited to be able to keep some of the Show magic alive within our stores across the state.”

“Showbags are key part of the Show experience and a great treat for everyone, young and old”, said Mr Cotter.

“Being a part of local communities in Adelaide and key regions throughout South Australia, OTR stores will make it convenient for people to buy their showbags and bring some of the joy of the Show back into their homes.

“Customers can also feel extra good when they buy a Showbag from OTR, as they can scan their OTR App barcode with their purchase and create a donation to their chosen OTRGive community partner at no cost to them. OTRGive has raised nearly $300,000 for SA charities including RSPCA, Canteen and Hutt St Centre, so you’re helping the community and doubling the joy your showbag will bring.”

Bensons Trading’s Showbags General Manager of Retail and Product Development, Samantha Atkinson said “As proud champions of bringing toys and treats in our beloved showbags, we are excited to see the tradition of iconic showbags go on with our first partnership with OTR. We know how much South Australians love the Show, so are thrilled to begin this partnership and hope to bring smiles to the faces of many would-be show goers across the state.”
