28 October 2021

7-Eleven Wodonga opened today with a local team of 14 at 4353 Anzac Parade. City of Wodonga Mayor Kev Poulton joined the 7-Eleven team to formally open the first of what is expected to be approximately three stores on the border.

Wodonga local Nikki Stopps is leading the team as Store Manager, supported by Assistant Store Manager Amy Dosser.

Ms Stopps said that the entire team is thrilled to welcome customers to the new store.

“Being able to offer a brand-new store to our local customers is exciting. The range we are going to offer is something new for the border, and we’re aiming to provide brilliant service to the community. We can’t wait to welcome everyone to the new store,” Ms Stopps said.

The store will provide 7-Eleven’s full fresh food, convenience and quality Mobil fuel offer. Border residents will be able to grab their favourite products and fill up at any time as the store will operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It will feature a full range of food and convenience options including; 7-Eleven’s handmade sandwiches, wraps and Krispy Kreme doughnuts, as well as 7-Eleven’s $1 freshly ground coffee, and Slurpee including Slurpee Low Sugar options.

According to 7-Eleven Australia Regional Victoria Lead, Alex Foley the store will receive deliveries seven days a week.

“Our supply chain means that our fresh food including sandwiches, sushi, salads and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts can be delivered every day of the week. While I’m sure the Krispy Kreme Doughnuts will be a popular treat, the sandwich range and sushi are pretty delicious for people looking for tasty fresh food on the go,” Mr Foley said.

Border locals can use the My 7-Eleven App Fuel Price Lock feature to by the brand’s quality Mobil fuels. Drivers can lock in the cheapest fuel price available at the five closest 7-Eleven stores, and redeem it anytime in the next seven days at any 7-Eleven fuel store. As a bonus the app also has loyalty rewards, offers and discounts, and can be linked to Velocity Frequent Flyer rewards to earn Points.

The fuel price lock feature helped Australians save more than $34 million dollars from 1 October 2020 to 1 October 2021. Drivers saved an average of $7.69 per fill, an average of 20 cents per litre by using the fuel price lock.

Mr Foley said the store is designed provide customers additional convenient services.

“The services in the new store include 7-Eleven ParcelMate. This service allows customers to send parcels 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. 7-Eleven ParcelMate’s service provides customers with convenient, reliable, good value options to post parcels in Australia. Just pop your item in the right size satchel, and pay the relevant flat rate at when you drop off your parcel,” Mr Foley said.

7-Eleven’s planned growth on the border means there will be more opportunities for locals to join the Australian owned and operated family business.

“There has never been a better time for people to join our team. Our investment in providing regional Australians with the same convenience and choice as those in metropolitan areas means that people have the chance to build their skills and grow their careers with us as we accelerate our growth.
