Bertie Beetle is coming to Union Road in September

Shop local at participating Union Road retailers during the September 2020 school holidays and receive a special Royal Melbourne Show treat – Bertie Beetle.

While the Royal Melbourne Show may be cancelled for 2020, the spirit of the Show is still coming to Union Road in the shape of one of Australia’s most renown show bag treats, Bertie Beetle.

Union Road traders and the local Ascot Vale and surrounds community have celebrated the Royal Melbourne Show for more than 170 years. And during what has been a difficult time for everyone during COVID-19 lockdown, the Royal Melbourne Show will run online instead – and we’re excited to be a part of it.

Union Road traders would like to welcome the local community back to Union Road, and to say thanks to those who have continued to show their support for local business.

For all customers purchasing their daily essentials through any participating Union Road trader during the September 2020 school holiday period, you’ll be eligible to receive your own piece of the Royal Melbourne Show – a Bertie Beetle chocolate.

It’s a small way for your local community stores to say thank you for shopping local. So whether you’re doing your quick daily grocery shop, purchasing fresh flowers or fruit and vegetables, or grabbing a coffee or take-away to make your life a little easier, come to Union Road and be a part of the Royal Melbourne Show festivities.

But get in quick – these Bertie Beetles are going to fly out the door quickly, and it’s only while stocks last.
