One thing 'convenient' about the Prahran Convenience Store is that it is located in the heart of Prahran on 196 Commercial Road, next door to Carpe Diem and they are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. How Convenient!

This unobtrusive convenience store or 7-Eleven is like a treasure trove to discover. It has been around for 7 years and is owned by a gentle giant at around 6'5" called Jagi. He worked at the store for 3 years prior as an employee when it used to be next door to the Cullen, and has now owned it for seven, moving it to larger premises where it now stands.

A Treasure Trove to Discover


Under Jagi's ownership and vision for his store, to bring it into today's culture, he stocks the most vegan and organic products I have ever or never seen in other regular convenient stores. He wanted to stand out from the supermarkets, to sell something different, to house more vegan and organic products, and he's doing a good job of it.

Vegan and Organic products


There are a few convenience stores with a focus on vegan and organic products on the north side, but Prahran Convenience is the only one on this side of the city. It has groceries from Mexico, India, South Africa, Brazil, the United Kingdom and the United States to name a few, and if you can't find it, Jagi will source it and get it in for you if he can.

He is so confident his prices for the organic and vegan products are kept affordable for his customers compared to health food shops and he will price match his product if you can find the exact same item accompanied with a receipt to show him the lower price from somewhere else, and sell it to you for cheaper.

Death Sauce and other interesting items


It's definitely a favourite place for my family and friends when they're feeling snacky for some Maize tortilla corn chips, vegan chocolate and snacks or some coconut water to hydrate after a late night movie at the Jam Factory or a night out at the clubs. Drop in and have a chat with Jagi and enjoy his hospitality and ever helpful demeanour to locate all that you need from a convenience store.

You're right! This is a terrific little shop - and for a UK ex-pat, it's a delight to find Hula-Hoops! (My greatest treat.)
