After opening four new stores in 2021, including its first regional store in Busselton, 7-Eleven will continue to invest in the state, with seven new stores on the horizon for 2022.

Sine opening its first store in WA in 2014, the company has invested $47 million across the State, and according to Nick Maddox, 7-Eleven Area Lead – WA, will invest a further $6 million in new stores in 2022.

“Approximately 45 additional West Australians have joined our team in 2021, and we hope to have about 100 new roles available as our network continues to grow in 2022.”

Maddox said the company was incredibly excited to have opened their first regional store in Busselton and plan to grow its regional network by adding a new store in Treendale early next year.

7-Eleven is continuing to look for the right locations to bring its offer to new communities in metropolitan and regional Western Australia.

Maddox said they are interested in sites in both established suburbs and growth corridors positioned within reach of customers along busy commuter routes, immersed within residential precincts along connecting roads, local shopping, and community centres.

“Our preferred sites provide convenient access for passing traffic and suitable room for vehicle movement and easy customer parking. We’re continuing to work with landlords and developers in Western Australia to secure locations to serve our local communities.”

The pace of 7-Eleven’s growth means there’s potential for people who want a career in retail and to accelerate their progression, stated Maddox.

“For people looking to make a career path in a new industry, our career development and network growth provide support and opportunity.

“We’re looking for talented people with the right capabilities who might be interested in leadership. We invest in giving our people the skills they need to take advantage of the opportunities our growth provides.”
