There was an article in today’s Advertiser saying it’s a $15m cost for the conversion by Bunnings & it should be open by mid 2020.
Bunnings seems to be killing all of the competition. Total tools in thebarton is now closed.

If fuel goes away they will just sell the next thing.
The next big thing is electricity where you charge your car at home for a few hours.

How do they sell that at a fuel station lol ?

OTR even have stand alone stores that don't even sell petrol.
They had one of these stores on Anzac highway and they're now converting it to a petty station. If it was
such a good business as a standalone store then why are they converting it ?

Re: Petrol Station Owners

As bits said, they're not really "petrol stations" any more. Both are becoming more convenience stores, including fast food, along with other car related services like the big car washes. Petrol is less of a focus than it was previously. Fuel would make up about 80 percent of the income for a petro...

Re: Petrol Station Owners

I actually thought their business model (like McDonald's) is to be a land owner - so they are not as wedded to what business sits on the land as much as simply owning what they consider to be prime real estate on our major transport network. It would make sense for them to gradually add electric ch...

You’re speculating. Why won’t they be able to adapt to cater for electric cars?
With electric cars you charge the battery at home. We've already seen the death of video shops, record shops
taxis, etc due to new technology. Petrol stations will be the next casualty for Adelaide.

Re: Petrol Station Owners

X-Convenience and OTR are both investing heavily in petrol stations with an expectation that in the long term ( 25 - 30 years) they will get a return on it. But these petrol station supply non renewable energy which isn't sustainable over the long term. In 15 - 20 years time electric cars will have ...

Office building, wont happen. If it was apartments or a hotel I would take this proposal seriously. GHS, have you considered offering your services to developers and builders around Adelaide? You seem to know a lot more than them. Of course there are all those times in the past where you turned out...

Re: Petrol Station Owners

There's seems to be more and more money being spent on suburban petrol
stations in Adelaide and I can't help but think that they're not going to be sustainable. If Elon Musk
and his Tesla cars become popular I can see quite a lot of petrol stations closing
down in 10 years time.

Why?
There was a discussion on petrol stations on another thread and all hell broke loose.

I thought it was best to start a dedicated thread.

Who's the dodgiest owner of petrol stations in Adelaide ?

In my opinion the X - Convenience petrol stations are the most corrupt operation on the planet.

Please discuss.

Re: Former LeCornu Redevelopment | Mixed Use

This site would be great for an OTR. Nah, South Australia doesn't need any more dodgy servos. South Australian, family-owned businesses are "good" in some contexts. We seem to like buying food and wine from them, why don't "we" like buying our fuel from them? There's some pretty dodgy people runnin...
