MetroGo shifts into gear as Ampol and Woolworths Metro rebrand convenience stores

Thursday 17 March 2022: Today’s opening of the first Ampol Woolworths MetroGo store in Wamberal, NSW will mark an important step forward for the Ampol Woolworths Metro partnership.

 Ampol Woolworths MetroGo stores feature a range tailored for the local area looking to top-up on their groceries, along with fresh, quality food they can eat now, on the go, or grab for later. Customers will also benefit from the ability to earn points through Woolworths’ Everyday Rewards.

Woolworths General Manager - Metro Partnerships, Michelle White said: “MetroGo is dedicated to providing ultra convenience to our customers, and our partnership with Ampol has helped millions of Australians top up their tanks and easily access last minute ingredients for dinner, healthy snacks, and fresh food.

“MetroGo, developed in partnership with Ampol, is an evolution of the established Woolworths Metro brand that is specifically formulated to support the unique customer missions within the convenience and petrol retail environments.

“We’re excited to enter a new chapter with Ampol and look forward to welcoming Australians into Ampol Woolworths MetroGo nationwide.”

Jenny O’Regan, Ampol’s Chief Brand Officer, said: “This is an exciting new step in our strategy to deliver convenient solutions for our customers who are on-the-go.

“Available exclusively at Ampol locations, MetroGo acknowledges the unique needs of customers who shop with us. Whether customers are looking for quality coffee and brekkie on the go, a variety of tasty and nutritious lunch options or key ingredients for tonight’s dinner, they can find it at Ampol Woolworths MetroGo.

“Together with Woolworths, we’re setting a new standard of service, product quality and range within our channel.

“We look forward to powering the different journeys of our customers with Ampol Woolworths MetroGo.”

Since the partnership launched in 2019, Ampol and Woolworths Metro have rolled out 31 stores across New South Wales and Victoria, with 19 new locations planned by the end of 2022. The brand transition to MetroGo will be completed over the coming months.
