End Of An Era

Residents and seasoned travellers alike were surprised, late last month, to find that their much-loved ‘Jagers BP’ was temporarily closed for fuel, refreshments and meals. The reason? South Australia’s largest privately owned employer closed the premises for provisional refurbishment.

Although known to many for some years that Peregrine Corporation’s ‘On The Run’ had purchased the well known and respected service station, it still came as a surprise to many how quickly things changed.

With rumours and comment rife within the district, some have heard that OTR is considering closing the station or even installing a colossal deck area to the rear of Jagers Restaurant for customers to enjoy 180 degree views of the mighty River Murray.

With this in mind we asked Peregrine Corporation the following;

  • Has OTR retained the well trained and friendly staff at Jagers BP?
  • What future plans does OTR have for the site?

A spokesperson for OTR said:

  • “OTR offered employment to every single employee at Jagers BP Tailem Bend”.
  • “We would like to upgrade the store sometime next year and we are presently working through our plans, including offerings, for the site”.
