7-Eleven has decided to not renew its supply contract with Metcash when it runs out in in August 2020.
Second major contract loss this financial year
Metcash's annual sales from the contract with 7-Eleven amount to approximately AU$800m, mainly in lower margin categories such as tobacco. This latest development follows on from Metcash losing its contract to supply Drakes Supermarkets in South Australia in September who decided to open its own distribution centre rather then be served by Metcash. Despite the 7-Eleven announcement there is still hope that Metcash will be able to continue serving 7-Eleven stores in Western Australia.
