7-Eleven has opened its first site in Bendigo at 2 Club Court Strathfieldsaye with the brand expected to grow in regional Victoria in the next few years.
The store will employ 13 people under the leadership of Store Leader Dinesh Jakkidi and is part of 7-Eleven’s investment in providing regional Australians access to career opportunities and to the same choice and convenience that is available in metropolitan areas.
Nick Maddox, Area Lead South at 7-Eleven, said the store team is excited to welcome the community to the new store.
“People can grab their favourite products and fill up at any time 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We have food and convenience options including 7-Eleven’s handmade sandwiches, wraps and Krispy Kreme doughnuts, as well as 7-Eleven’s freshly ground Fairtrade Certified coffee, Slurpee including Slurpee No Sugar options and our frozen blended Smoothies, Frappes and Shakes.
“Our Store Leader Dinesh and his team have been doing an amazing job working to get this store stocked and ready to welcome our customers on opening day.”
Jakkidi echoed Maddox’s sentiment of the excitement of welcoming customers to the store, which will have fuel, food, convenience ranges, and deliveries of fresh food seven days a week.
“Our customers can download the My 7-Eleven App and use the Fuel Price Lock feature to lock in a price on our fuel that might be lower. It means customers can choose to fill up using the price they have locked in anytime that suits them within the next seven days. As a bonus, the app has loyalty rewards, offers, discounts and can be linked with your Velocity Frequent Flyer card to earn Points.”
