A MULTI-million-dollar revamp of Moby Vics service stations on the Bruce Hwy, 15km south of Caloundra, should be complete in time for the Christmas rush.
The two long-term Mobil outlets will be reopened under yellow and red colours as Shell service stations.
Despite the closure of the two stations in July, at least one existing tenant at the Moby Vics site said business had not been drastically affected.
"Customers are a bit down, but we have gained customers that were customers at the service station," said Steven Leach of Coffee En Route said.
"I think the change is good.
"A change will bring new people in that wouldn't have normally come in."
The Moby Vics sites' owner Drew Walker yesterday confirmed the upgraded service stations would include new Coles X-press and Hungry Jacks outlets.
He said the southbound outlet would be opened "definitely by Christmas" and the northbound outlet was aiming at a similar timeframe, although that was a "little more optimistic".
"It's going to improve the site enormously. It's going to be a state-of-the-art site.
"The existing tenants are excited, too, because of the increase in customers it's going to bring, but that can't be quantified yet."
Mr Walker said the new Shell service stations would feature state-of-the-art bowsers that would dispense all fuel types at each pump.
"They're keeping the footprint of the building, so it will be the same size as what used to be there, so the fuel part will be Coles Xpress and the kitchen area will be Hungry Jacks," Mr Walker said.
Other tenants are Subway and Beefy's pies.
The sites are the only fuel and food outlets from Forest Glen to Caboolture.
