About AACS

About Us

The Australasian Association of Convenience Stores (AACS) represents the interests of all businesses within the Australian convenience store channel. The Association was founded in 1990 to provide a platform for suppliers, retailers and associated businesses within the Australian convenience channel to network, develop their individual businesses and the channel as a whole, whilst providing training and education for all levels of staff to maximise their potential. The aim was also to enhance and improve the channel by collective representation to the government and general public on matters of importance to the industry.

The AACS boasts members right across Australia and we have strong alliances with overseas Associations. Our members range from high profile brands to independently owned stores, from global suppliers to sole traders. Our calendar of conferences, international study tours and training programs is extremely well regarded and supported. I would like to thank all of our Members for their continued support. If you are not a member and your business is involved with the convenience channel, I would be delighted to hear from you to discuss how we can help with the growth and success of your business.
