7-Eleven Australia launches Melbourne delivery service

7-Eleven Australia has launched a delivery service making it easier for Melburnians to #stayhome #staysafe and get treats, snacks and key essentials delivered with no contact delivery.

The new service from the Australian owned and operated convenience chain allows consumers to log on to www.7ElevenDelivery.com.au, enter their address and place their order.

According to 7-Eleven CEO, Angus McKay, the service has been developed and rolled out in about two weeks in conjunction with Tipple.

“The 7-Eleven Group acquired a majority stake in Tipple in 2018, as part of our investment in on-demand ‘last-mile’ delivery and technological capability. By working with their network of delivery drivers, we’re able to provide consumers with more options to get the things they need while minimising how often they need to leave their house. We are rolling this out in Melbourne for most suburbs and will look at other states in the coming months, Mr McKay said.

“This new service is ideal for people who are unable to get out to get basic essentials or ready to eat foods and need delivery within a shorter timeframe. In some suburbs there are within the hour delivery options, but for most suburbs, customers can order for next day delivery.”

The brand’s stores provide a great alternative for essential service workers and people going out for fuel, food and other staples.

“Our stores are open around the clock and part of the suburbs in which we live. Customers can buy fuel, food, and a range of other essentials, and our store teams are working incredibly hard on increased cleaning routines and helping customers with the new social distancing requirements in-stores,” he said.

Mr McKay advised that the company’s network of more than 700 stores, including in excess of 450 family owned franchise businesses, is focused on meeting the needs of their local communities.

“We’re committed to working with our franchisees, store leaders and store teams to provide essential services and supplies to our community. We’re here for you 24/7,” Mr McKay concluded.

With the New South Wales state election complete, we now have a Labor government in place in every state except Tasmania and an 18 month window without any elections occurring.  
This provides a period where we may see significant reform and potentially for national alignment in key policy areas across Australia.  

The rich tapestry of neurodiversity

There is a slow shift towards incorporating design aspects that create more inclusive shopping experiences for customers of all neurotypes. Retailers willing to explore this hidden customer segment can deliver a more easy, engaging and inclusive experience both in-store and online.
