7-Eleven expands in WA and plans seven stores and $6m investment for further growth

7-Eleven expands in Western Australia with the opening of four new stores, including its first regional store at Busselton, with an additional outlet at Brabham expected to open before Christmas.

Nick Maddox, 7-Eleven Area Lead – WA, reports the company is going to continue to grow by investing approximately $6m new stores in 2022.

“We expect to open about seven stores in Western Australia in 2022. We are incredibly excited to open our first regional store at Busselton and will continue to grow our regional network adding a new store at Treendale in early 2022,” he said.

The convenience chain has invested $5m in recent growth, bringing the total invested in the region to more than $47m since the unveiling of the first store in October 2014.

The company’s continued investment opens up job opportunities and accelerated career progression in both metropolitan and regional areas.

“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. The pace of our growth means there’s potential for people who want a career in retail and to accelerate their progression,” Nick said.

Extensive training ensures business success is not dependent on individuals’ fuel and convenience retail experience.

“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.”

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

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

“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.”
