Going down every Thursday in August, the iconic bakery will be giving away 10,000 free items to customers when they visit and make a purchase.

It’s as simple as that.

There are 120 free items in each store each week but be quick because the offer is only available while stocks last.

Kicking it off this week, on Thursday, August 5, customers can get their hands on free 120th Birthday YoYo Biscuit with every purchase; a free cup of coffee on August 12, a free jam donut on August 19, and a mouth-watering free cupcake on August 26.

No strangers to celebrating a birthday, the bakery is passionate about celebrating milestones, and are especially passionate about treating their loyal customers who have had a particularly difficult time these past 18 months. And as a family-owned and operated business, the unwavering support from Victorians is not lost on them.

Built on expectation, spirit and pleasure, Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses are constants for Victorians, hand-crafting their delicious desserts, birthday, wedding cakes, award-winning meat pies and Tiddly Oggies.

From humble beginnings as two separate businesses in the 1900’s as Plarre’s Cakes and J.A. Ferguson, it was a friendly rivalry that inspired the companies to join forces in 1980, merging to become the renowned Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses. Pleasing anyone who loves their baked goods, that also meant combining an impressive marriage of knowledge and experience boasting over 200 years of combined expertise.

Fast forward to today, and you will find more than 80 Ferguson Plarre stores across Victoria selling all sorts of delicious treats like pies, vanilla slices, eclairs, all made at their Keilor Park headquarters. Committed to ensuring Victorians have access to premium quality bakery products at reasonable prices, Ferguson Plarre only uses the very best ingredients, continuously maintaining excellence and innovation in their baking.
