"That whole building will be down by the end of the day," Scope project manager Hayden Smaill said.
"The rest of the week we’ll be removing slabs and foundations, which is the trickier part of it because they’re all hard and heavy, all concrete and deep in the ground."
Before the shop could be demolished, asbestos had to be taken out by removal company Scope.
It will all be replaced by a new Caltex fuel outlet including a shop and bigger forecourt.
"The forecourt will be ... twice as big. You’re going to have double the pumps," owner Stephen Pulley said.
The Caltex is locally owned by Mr Pulley, who owned a previous Caltex, in Crawford St, in 2006.
"The shop’s going to bigger and flasher ... food to go, coffee, all that."
The rebuild of the site would cost about $3million and it would be open at the start of August.
