A Ringwood service station has had a fine food makeover as part of a major retailer’s new partnership.
David Jones has established a food store inside the BP petrol station on Maroondah Highway, which reopened last week.
The service station closed for renovations earlier this year and is the third BP in Australia to get David Jones Food behind Brighton East and Glen Waverley.
It boasts more than 400 David Jones Food products including grab-and-go items, pre-prepared meals and dinners and groceries, along with BP’s usual products and the Wild Bean Cafe.
BP Australia’s Brooke Miller said the store had been designed to “cater to the expectations of busy, urban customers”.
“Our BP Ringwood and David Jones Food store offers customers a glimpse into the future of shopping … aiming to deliver an outstanding retail experience with the highest quality fresh food at great value,” she said.
David Jones Food managing director Pieter de Wet said the products’ arrival at BP Ringwood signalled “an exciting new chapter” for the brand.
“As consumer behaviour changes and demand for fresh and accessible food-for-now and food-for-later options continues to increase, we’re excited to present a new concept to Australian consumers that’s set to change the way they shop for food,” he said.
Three other Melbourne BPs in Brighton, Clarendon and Greensborough will also welcome David Jones Food in February and March.
BP Australia did not say how much the renovations of the Ringwood service station had cost.
