After a two-year wait, Astron Energy and FreshStop were thrilled to announce the opening of the new V&A Waterfront service station, perfectly timed to cater to the influx of local and international visitors during the summer holiday season. The former FreshStop Waterfront was demolished as part of the V&A Waterfront Canal District redevelopment project, but has returned bigger and better!
The new service station boasts a unique orange and purple livery, seamlessly fitting in with the aesthetic of the district. The site features a FreshStop convenience store, offering a variety of options including Seattle Coffee, Crispy Chicken, and a Boost Bar.
Retailer Riaz Jaffer and his team are excited to welcome back familiar faces who have been eagerly awaiting the reopening of the station.
“We are so excited to be back and to welcome our loyal customers, many of whom are like family and old friends,” said Riaz. “With the V&A being a 24-hour neighbourhood, we used to receive customers at all hours and we look forward to providing the same welcoming experience that makes people feel at home once again.”
The V&A Waterfront service station is one of the 30 rebranded service stations that Astron Energy has opened so far in 2022, and it’s a great addition to the bustling area between the CBD and docks.
