7-Eleven opens first mall location in the U.S.


7-Eleven debuted its first ever location in a U.S. shopping centre in Brandon Floria. last week, marking the first of seven mall stores to open this year, according to ABC Action News.

“This year we’ve opened new concept stores in sporting venues and airports to meet the convenience needs of our customers,” said Charles Bantos, 7-Eleven director of corporate development. “Our entry into shopping centers is aligned with our strategy of meeting customers when and where they most need us. Shoppers and mall employees alike can visit this 7-Eleven store to refuel with a quick snack, treat and drink, or grab one of the many meal-time options including sandwiches, salads, hot pizza, chicken tenders and entrées. 7-Eleven continues to redefine convenience for consumers, and Westfield Brandon Shopping Centre presented the perfect opportunity to make the leap into a multi-store shopping venue.”

"The addition of 7-Eleven at our centre caters to the daily needs of our guests," said Katie Woolridge, senior shopping centre manager of Westfield Brandon. "By adding daily conveniences such as these, we continue to give our guests more reasons to visit while creating a fulfilling shopping experience."

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