DALLAS – Tick, tick, tick. As the holiday countdown continues, 7 Eleven stores become last-minute shopping headquarters and emergency stops for gifts, groceries and more. Even better, shoppers can check things off their list while completing a morning coffee run, or while fueling their cars.
“7-Eleven offers convenience, and that is especially important during the hectic holiday season when time is short and to-do lists are long,” said Jack Stout, 7-Eleven vice president of merchandising, in a press release. “With most stores open 24/7 every day including Christmas, we stand ready to fulfill almost any spur-of-the-moment or unexpected need.”
Here are a few convenient 7-Eleven solutions to help shoppers wrap things up. Selections vary by store. Sometimes it's easy to forget the basics like milk and bread when worrying about all the big things to buy. In addition to its daily grocery selection, 7-Eleven orders up a special inventory of holiday food items. Also, 7-Eleven stores carry batteries of all sizes. Smartphone chargers and earbuds for a variety of devices are also available for those who left theirs at home or on the plane.
Instead of dashing from store to store, 7-Elevens are stocked with easy-to-purchase gifts, saving consumers' time for other holiday festivities. Gifts for all ages span from popular toys, like camera-drones and remote-control dinosaurs, to electronic smartphone accessories, and even to a variety of toys for pets. Customers will find stuffing stockings at 7-Eleven is easy with a range of gift cards (Vanilla Visa, iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, PlayStation, Xbox), Slurpee coupons, lottery tickets and candy.
“Our product selection has expanded to offer even more of the items people need during the holidays and every day of the year,” Stout said. "At 7-Eleven, there are no mall crowds, you can park close, and we're open all day and night.”
