Goodie bags pop­u­lar at expo

Stratford Press - - News - By ILONA HANNE

Plenty of goodie bags have been fill­ing up with lots of treats, in readi­ness for the New Ply­mouth Women’s Life­style Expo which takes place at the TSB Sta­dium in New Ply­mouth this week­end.

Re­nee Mur­ray from NZME Events, or­gan­iser of the expo, says the goodie bags have be­come fa­mous with expo vis­i­tors who love a bar­gain.

“As al­ways, the bags this year are a mys­tery bag in­clud­ing a mas­cara, a fash­ion scarf and much more,” Re­nee says.

“Priced at only $20, these bags are sure to be a hit with expo vis­i­tors.”

She says the goodie bags do sell out so it is a case of get in quick or miss out.

While the goodie bags are al­ways pop­u­lar, Re­nee says an­other pop­u­lar fea­ture of the expo is the Taste Zone.

“Vis­i­tors can sam­ple goods from mar­ti­nis and ar­ti­san bread to pate and much more.”

A new fea­ture this year is guar­an­teed to be a hit with any brides at­tend­ing the show.

“This year we also have Etcetera Bridal com­ing to the show with a huge bridal gown sale up­stairs at the show.”

Re­nee says this is the sec­ond year the expo has come to New Ply­mouth since NZME took over the show.

“The show has been run­ning for around 20 years — the orig­i­nal own­ers used to bring the show to New Ply­mouth but stopped around 15 years ago. When NZME pur­chased the shows they de­cided to re­in­state the New Ply­mouth one last year.”

With around 130 com­pa­nies in­volved, the show re­ally does bring some­thing for ev­ery woman, says Re­nee.
