7-Eleven Canada is opening two new convenience stores at YYC Calgary International Airport. Open 24/7 and located in the Domestic Terminal, Concourses A & C, both stores will serve travelers and airport employees, as well as those waiting to pick up.

“Whether you are a domestic traveler, an airport employee or are awaiting the arrival of a loved one, we are excited to be adding a convenience factor to the YYC community with these two new locations,” says VP and general manager of 7-Eleven Canada, Norman Hower. “We want to provide travelers and employees with an easy, 24/7 solution for last minute meals, souvenirs, flowers or travel items.”

The newly open stores are conveniently located and offer a wide variety of “hot from the oven in minutes” pizza, wings and hot snacks, fresh to go sandwiches and meals, and beverages, as well as 7-Eleven’s coffee bar and classic Slurpee stations. Freshly cut flowers from fellow airport retailer, A Touch of Petals, are also available in store.

“We are so happy to celebrate the arrival of 7-Eleven Canada at YYC. The brand is globally recognized and has close community ties to Calgary – being home to a Slurpee’s first pour in Canada 50 years ago,” says Rob Palmer, CFO and VP finance, The Calgary Airport Authority. “Our guests asked for changes to our Eat and Shop options and one of the ways we’re delivering is with this partnership with 7-Eleven.”

Based in Irving, Texas, 7-Eleven operates, franchises and/or licenses more than 69,000 in 17 countries, including 11,800 in North America.
