Hot chip icons return to Gympie in pop-up shop this weekend

GYMPIE Show icons Shannon’s Chips will bring their trademark brand of delectable fries back to the region this weekend in the form of a pop-up shop.

The community was deprived of their chance to sample the unmistakeable Shannon’s brand when COVID-19 forced the Gympie Show to pull the pin on its 2020 edition in March.

But the Shannon’s team has endeavoured, and will open their doors to the Gold City with the help of 1 Stop Machinery on Saturday and Sunday.

Renee Albrecht, Scott Kovacevic, Bec Singh and Josh Preston of the Gympie Times enjoy Shannon's Chips at the 2018 Gympie Show.

1 Stop Machinery is located at 27 Brisbane Rd.
