BP, David Jones to launch 21 food sites by end-2020

Two-thirds of these sites will be located in Sydney.

Fuel retailer BP and department store retailer David Jones is expanding their convenience offering, with 21 new stores to be opened by the end of 2020 across both Melbourne and Sydney – taking the total to 31 dual-branded sites in Australia.

In a media release, both companies said these stores have been carefully designed to cater to the expectations of busy, urban customers, offering David Jones Food food-for-now and food-for-later options, pre-prepared meals and groceries.

Fourteen of the 21 sites are slated to open in Sydney in Kellyville, Marden Park, Seven Hills, Willoughby, Caringbah, Mosman, Sydenham, Penrith, Thornleigh, Asquith, Engadine, Peninsula, West Ryde and Ourimbah.

Seven of the partner stores will be built in Melbourne, located in Merrifield, Clyde, Epping, Caroline Springs, Eltham, Greenvale and Kingsway.

All partner sites will also have a select range of the David Jones Food offering available to order on Uber Eats.

“Our strategy to lead the transformation of convenience retailing in Australia is resonating with our customers who lead busy lives and want easy access to healthy and delicious food, alongside BP’s other high-quality products and fuel offers,” Brooke Miller, BP Australia vice president sales and marketing, said.

Pieter de Wet, managing director David Jones Food, said,

“David Jones has embarked on a very exciting journey with our partner bp, with the aim of transforming fresh convenience food in the Australian market. We have been delighted with the performance of our 10 trial stores in Victoria and New South Wales, and the feedback and response from our customers has been very positive,” added Pieter de Wet, managing director of David Jones Food.
