Mini supermarkets at Ampol petrol stations in Sandringham, Elstenwick, Kew, Mt Waverley

You’ll be able to pick up snags with your petrol in a mini supermarket revolution coming to petrol stations near you.

Ampol petrol stations are set to become mini supermarkets with the opening of Victoria’s first Ampol Woolworths Metro store in Sandringham.

Ampol’s Executive General Manager, Retail, Brand and Culture, Jo Taylor says it is aimed at capturing a growing convenience market in Australia.

“We see a huge opportunity to bring to Australian customers an enhanced offer that taps into the busy needs of consumers who are on the go, but want really high quality fresh produce, as well as a convenient way in which they can prop up their pantry at home and cook a delicious meal for their family and friends,” she says.

It’s fantastic that we’re bringing the first store to Melbourne, and really together, changing the nature of convenience shopping in Australia, so that we can help people live their lives a little bit easier in what are somewhat challenging and difficult times.”

The first Ampol Woolworths Metro store was launched in Sydney in 2019. Thirteen more sites are expected to open before Christmas, including three new stores in Melbourne in Mount Waverley, Elsternwick and Kew.

Woolworths General Manager – Metro Partnerships Michelle White says there are 1400 products in store including quality fresh food and grocery essentials.

“Our Melbourne customers lead busy lives and are increasingly looking for convenient local food stores with the fresh and healthy foods they want. This partnership brings the best of both brands together and delivers a whole new level of convenience for the benefit of our mutual customers,” she says.

Bringing the latest in convenience technology to Melbourne consumers, the shop features self-serve check outs and access to the Ampol App, where consumers can pay from the convenience of their phone and access special offers.

Consumers are also provided the ability to access the store’s broad range of products from the comfort of their home through Uber Eats.
