I needed milk today and just didn’t have the energy for a stop at a grocery store. There before me appeared a relative new 7 Eleven at the corner of South 56th Street and Yakima. It was a really nice, well stocked, well light and pleasant employees. Beside the needed milk I picked up a good looking sandwich for lunch tomorrow for only $3.99.
Monday was Bookclub night and I found myself with not enough time to eat dinner (back planning on my part), but still wanting a little something. So I stopped at the 7-11 at 10649 108th Avenue Southwest, Lakewood, WA. It looked like all of the other 7-11s I had ever been in and I thought it was slightly more interesting to take the photo through my car window.
Today, 7.11.11 was 7 Eleven’s 84th birthday and they gave away 7.11 oz. slurpees all day long. We went to the one near the Tacoma Mall at 4701 S. Oakes and we weren’t the only ones with this bright idea! I had the banana, which was pretty darned tasty and dear daughter had the Berry, which was blue and she drank the whole thing so I guess it was alright. According to Wikipedia 7-Eleven is “is the world’s largest operator, franchisor and licensor of convenience stores, with more than 39,000 outlets”. 8,200 of these are in the US. The company originated in Dallas, TX, but the franchise is now owned by the Japanese Company Ito-Yokado.
