7-Eleven welcomes Senate Committee’s recommendation that convenience stores should be allowed to sell alcohol

7-Eleven welcomes the interim report of the Senate Select Committee on Red Tape, which recommends allowing packaged alcohol to be sold in convenience stores, among a range of other measures to reduce red tape and promote competition, business growth, and investment.

As Australia’s first choice for convenience, we believe 7-Eleven stores should be able to offer our customers the choice to pick up a bottle of beer or wine on the way home, just as convenience stores can and do in many other developed markets around the world.

We’re not advocating 24/7 trade in alcohol - simply being able to offer our customers the same access to the same products within the same regulatory frameworks as supermarkets and drive-throughs are currently able to, and as our stores already responsibly do with tobacco products.

7-Eleven thanks the Committee for their careful consideration of the evidence, and looks forward to the final report and working with the Australian Government and COAG to implement the recommendations.
