7-Eleven opens store at Woy Woy, NSW
This is the chain’s seventh opening for this year.
7-Eleven Australia announced the opening of its seventh store for 2021 at Woy Woy in New South Wales, part of a larger push to expand regionally.
The chain’s investments in network expansion so far this year have created approximately 60 new jobs, according to Braeden Lord, 7-Eleven’s tribe lead for channel.
“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,” he said. “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,” he added.
Prior to Woy Woy, the chain opened stores in Metford in NSW, Derrimut in VIC, Rockingham Central and Perth in WA, Eight Mile Plains (Northbound) and Mt Warren Park in QLD.
Further stores are expected to open in Busselton in Western Australia, Shepparton in Victoria, and on the Victorian New South Wales border in Albury-Wodonga.
