7-Eleven opens its first store in Cairns

7-Eleven has entered Cairns with its first site opening at 334-336 Sheridan Street North Cairns on 27 June.

This investment is part of 7-Eleven’s focus on providing regional Australians access to career opportunities, and to the same choice and convenience that is available in metropolitan areas.

7-Eleven Retail Area Lead North, Jeff Yerbury, said it’s exciting to be joining the community in Cairns by making an investment that will create jobs and help drive economic growth for the area.

“Our investment and network growth will provide locals the chance to grow in their careers as we expand. The opportunity is there also for those who might be looking to shift into our industry from other fields.

“The team members we recruit will be provided with extensive training to deliver an excellent customer experience so previous work history in the petrol and convenience industry isn’t a requirement.”

The new 7-Eleven Cairns site employs a team of 18 and is ready to grow under the leadership of Senior Store Manager Rebecca Inkson and Store Manager Justus Dower.

Yerbury continued that 7-Eleven is proud to be investing in the region and we can expect to see the brand continue to grow in regional Queensland in the next few years.

“We are continuing to work with landlords and developers to open stores in the right locations to meet the needs of the community.”
