    Investment in regional jobs and growth has continued with the opening of a new 7-Eleven store in Colac today.

    Located on the corner of Murray and Scott Streets, and led by Colac local Cameron Gibson, the new store will contribute at least 10 new jobs to the area.

    7-Eleven General Manager of Retail Operations Braeden Lord said the company was pleased to have found a new home in regional Victoria.

    “Colac is a wonderful, thriving town and the local community has made us feel incredibly welcome,” he said.

    “Thanks to our new supply chain capability, it’s exciting that we’re able to unlock new opportunities like this and bring the unique 7-Eleven offer to more regional communities.

    “Over the past few years, we have grown into major Australian regional centres including Toowoomba, Bathurst and Ballarat.”

    With more than 216 stores owned and operated by small family businesses and 3,200 staff employed across the Victorian store network and support office, Lord said he was proud that 7-Eleven continued to provide new career opportunities across the state.

    Further growth is expected across regional Victoria in 2021, with potential growth areas including the Western District and Gippsland.
