Three new large format Dan Murphy’s stores will open in time for Christmas trading, with a fourth due to open in January 2024, bringing the total number of Dan Murphy’s stores nationally to 272.
In November, Victoria gained three new Dan Murphy’s stores in Spotswood, Epsom, and Rosebud, and Woolooware in Sydney’s south is on track to open in January 2024.
In addition to these brand new stores, six stores have re-launched following renewals in the last month. Dan Murphy’s in Albury, Ballina, Shepparton, Erina, Noarlunga and Burwood are now all offering the latest store features to make customers’ shopping experience as seamless as possible, including electronic shelf labels, enhanced pick-up options and internal and external refreshes.
Dan Murphy’s Managing Director Agi Pfeiffer-Smith said the brand new stores and renewals demonstrate its unwavering commitment to big box retailing and expanding the Dan Murphy’s brand.
“Dan Murphy’s success is built on large format stores and we continue to make targeted investments to tap into growing markets in strong population growth corridors,” Pfeiffer-Smith said.
The four brand new stores will add more than 3,000 square metres of retail space to our network by January, and will bring the total number of new Dan Murphy’s stores opened over the course of the year to eight, in addition to 15 store renewals.
“Every year we aim to expand our network by about this number of new stores and 2024 will be no different. In fact we’ve just announced we plan to open a Dan Murphy’s at Perth Airport, which promises to be a fantastic new store servicing a wide range of locals and tourists alike.
“We are right in the midst of our busiest trading period, and with 5.3 million MyDan’s members (and counting), I would like to thank people right across the country who trust Dan Murphy’s to deliver the best drinks and value for their festive social occasions with family, friends and loved ones. Our team of merchants can’t wait to help you on your drinks discovery journey this summer.”
Epsom, a suburb of Bendigo in regional Victoria is Store 269. It is part of the Village Epsom Shopping Centre which after opening in 2008 has become the centre of the northern Bendigo corridor inclusive of Huntly, Eaglehawk and surrounding areas. Currently the centre is in the midst of a ~$25M broader redevelopment. The store has a trading floor of ~809sqm and has welcomed 12 new team members.
Spotswood, in south-west Melbourne, ~7km from the CBD is Store 270. The store is part of the exciting Union Quarter development which will see ~330+ apartments, and a buzzing retail precinct completed in the coming years. Directly across Melbourne Road is also being developed for the purpose of residential living, with another ~700+ units to be built. The store has a trading floor of ~1,094sqm and has welcomed 19 new team members..
Rosebud is a seaside town on the Mornington Peninsula, ~60kms south of Melbourne. It is a popular tourist destination, particularly with families who appreciate the sandy beaches and the clear, shallow waters where the foreshore remains one of the largest camping areas on ‘The Peninsula’. The store has the entire Rosebud Plaza mall complex on-grade car park to service customer flow and will offer pick-up via both in-store collection and Direct-to-Boot via an express drive thru. The store has a trading floor of ~778sqm and has welcomed 30 new team members.
