Gympie’s first 7-Eleven will open Thursday 8 June at 48 Exhibition Road, Southside, Gympie with a team of 16 under the leadership of Joanne Hodgson.
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. That focus is expected to see the brand continue to grow in regional Queensland in the next few years.
Mr Tony Perrett MP, Member for Gympie, and Mayor Glen Hartwig from Gympie Regional Council are expected to join the team to officially celebrate the occasion.
According to 7-Eleven Area Lead North, Jeff Yerbury, the store team is excited to welcome the community to their 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,” Mr Yerbury said.
“Our Store Manager Joanne Hodgson and her team have been doing an amazing job working to get this store stocked and ready to welcome our customers on opening day.”
According to Ms Hodgson, the team are excited to welcome locals to their new 7-Eleven, which will have fuel, food and convenience ranges, and deliveries of fresh food seven days a week.
The store offers high quality Mobil fuels and gives Gympie locals access to the My 7-Eleven App including fuel price lock feature.
“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,” Ms Hodgson said.
