our trip to the servo is about to become extra fancy, with David Jones set to open a string of high-end convenience stores across Sydney.
The iconic department store retailer will partner with BP service stations to roll out 14 David Jones Food stores by the end of the year.
David Jones has revealed the premium convenience stores will open their doors at existing BP service stations in Seven Hills, Marsden Park, Kellyville, Penrith, Willoughby, Caringbah, Mosman, Sydenham, Thornleigh, Asquith, Engadine, Peninsula, West Ryde and Ourimbah.
The stores mark a fancy twist on the traditional service station convenience store and will offer food-for-now and food-for-later options, as well as pre-prepared meals and groceries from David Jones Food.
A selection of premium food options will be also available for delivery via Uber Eats, for those looking for extra convenience.
The latest announcement comes as part of David Jones Food’s rapid expansion in Sydney and Melbourne, with 21 new stores in the works.
The high-end food offerings will be in addition to the usual drinks and snacks available at BP’s Wild Bean Cafes.
David Jones Food managing director Pieter de Wet said the stores aimed to transform convenience food.
“We have been delighted with the performance of our 10 trial stores in Victoria and New South Wales, and the feedback and response from our customers has been very positive,” Mr de Wet said.
“David Jones and BP are two iconic brands that share complimentary skills and similar service values, and we work extremely well together.”
The expansion follows the trial of five stores in Sydney, which opened earlier this year in Rozelle, Artarmon, Kingsford, Ashfield and Mosman.
