Melbourne Cup Public Holiday Trading Hours

The Melbourne Cup Public Holiday is just around the corner and most EARL stores will be closed, except Emporium who will be open from 10am – 6pm.

Our catering team will be working hard behind the scenes in our production kitchen, putting together a buffet lunch for 500 guests for a corporate event.  The picture above from last year’s event, just before the hungry guests swooped in.  As you might assume, the table didn’t stay looking like this for long.

Remember, it’s not too late to place a catering order for any of the remaining race days.  Who knows, the sun might even come out to join us for one of them!

We’ve done a run down of just how you might be able to make use of our catering over the Spring Racing Carnival in our last blog post, here.
