Why One Long-Time 7-Eleven Wasn't Part of Dallas-Based Chain's Growth Strategy
7-Eleven spokesperson Margaret Chabris says that location actually shuttered a few weeks ago -- which goes to show how popular it was. Why the closing after all the years? Easy, she says: "It wasn't going to be part of our long-term store base because it wasn't making the kind of money it needed to." The reasons: "It wasn't facing the street, it didn't have gasoline, and it was a much smaller store. We decided we're going to put our growth money into other locations. We've got a new location under construction at the corner of Forest Lane and Central Expressway, and we have the store at Preston Road and Forest."
