Service station giant 7-Eleven has confirmed its first Shepparton store will open before Christmas.

The outlet at 228-238 Numurkah Rd is slated to open on Friday, December 17, as one of several stores across the city.

Applications were submitted to Greater Shepparton City Council earlier this year for stations on Numurkah Rd, Benalla Rd and on the Goulburn Valley Hwy south of Wilmot Rd.

7-Eleven regional Victoria lead Alex Foley said there would be several stores, and recruitment for the first store would begin shortly.

“Shepparton North is the first of what we think will be approximately three to four stores in Shepparton,” Mr Foley said.

“It’s an investment of approximately $4 million, and we expect will provide between 10 and 15 ongoing jobs per store.

“We’re excited about the talent available in Shepparton and would encourage people who are keen to join the team to follow us on LinkedIn and keep an eye on and our website for job ads.”

The company owns more than 700 stores across Victoria, NSW, the ACT, Queensland and Western Australia.
