New Opening Date Set for 7-11
The convenience store should be open this month.
The original opening date of Oct. 24 for the new 7-Eleven store has come and gone, but your Slurpee fix is right around the corner.
The new opening date is scheduled for Nov. 14, according to Scott Drake, of the finance and communications department for 7-Eleven, Inc.
The newest 7-Eleven location is at 407 Route 130 South at the corner of Highland Avenue.
The store is owned by Lehigh Gas Corporation, a group based in Bethlehem, PA. It holds partnerships with several gas station companies including Mobil, Hess and Gulf.
The new 7-Eleven will not feature a gas station, however.
The store is around 3,000 square feet and will hold 18 parking spots. The 7-Eleven at the Route 130 and Riverton Road jug handle will remain open.
