7-Eleven continues in investment in regional communities

7-Eleven Australia continues to invest in growing its store network providing employment opportunities in local communities, bringing new convenient options and range of choice, with the opening of its seventh store for 2021 at Woy Woy in New South Wales.

7-Eleven's Tribe Lead for Channel, Braeden Lord, said 7-Eleven's significant investments in network expansion so far this year have created approximately 60 new jobs and there are many more to come.

“Regional expansion, like our new Woy Woy store, is a key priority for our business and is possible because of enhanced supply chain capability and innovation, which enables us to have the right store formats and offers available for customers,” Mr. Lord said. “We believe people in regional Australia should have the same access to convenience as those living in metropolitan areas. Our teams are working on a range of new formats and offers for customers."

"In 2020 we piloted micro market format stores, launched our home delivery offer, and continued to experiment with new product ranges and digital services. The next twelve months will see us continue to adapt and trial a range of new innovations and formats in our network in partnership with our franchisees and suppliers. By investing in innovation, we provide new offers and opportunities for our franchisees to meet the needs of customers and to grow their businesses. Our stores are local businesses, employing local people and growing local economies."

The Woy Woy store follows the opening of stores in Metford NSW, Derrimut VIC, Rockingham Central WA, Willliam Street Perth WA, Eight Mile Plains Northbound QLD, and Mt Warren Park QLD earlier in 2021.
