Calling kiosk vendors

Small businesses have the chance to be part of the daily bustle of Perth’s new Airport Line with expressions of interest now open for potential operators of kiosks at Redcliffe and High Wycombe stations. 

Foot traffic at both stations is expected to be in the thousands by 2031, while broader planning to establish new community and development outcomes in the precincts around each of the stations will further improve the kiosks’ catchment. 

Similar single-tenancy arrangements are already in place across the rail network with Perth and Elizabeth Quay stations home to multiple businesses such as convenience stores, hairdressers, and general retail. 

About 40 square metres of space is available at High Wycombe Station and 35.5 square metres at Redcliffe. Applicants will need to have previous retail experience and show financial stability. 

The six-week EOI period will close on 2 December. 

Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said Redcliffe and High Wycombe stations had been designed with these kiosk spaces, both for the convenience of commuters and to give small businesses the opportunity to take advantage of the high foot traffic. 

“This opportunity is open to the retail market such as newsagencies, convenience stores or any type of retail business that does not require on-site cooking and that would thrive in this prominent environment,” she said.
