Applegreen announces another 7-Eleven opening west of Lexington
Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) – Applegreen has announced they will open another 7-Eleven convenience store in Lexington County. They are inviting Lexington County residents to sip, snack and join the fun at its grand opening event from 2-6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 28 for its newest store at 784 US 378.
In December 2018, 7-Eleven made its return to Lexington County after a 4-year absence. The brand is continuing to partner with Applegreen USA to open additional stores in Lexington and the Midlands throughout 2019.
Elizabeth Pierce, President of Applegreen Southeast USA, said, “We look forward to being a go-to convenience store in the local area and business community in the Midlands, providing 24 hour gas and quality food and beverage. We invite the community to come out and celebrate our third location in Lexington!”
During Thursday’s grand-opening celebration there will be lots of special store promotions. Those include:
Product promotions and special giveaways from partners including Shell Fuel Corporation, Budweiser, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Monster, Miller/Coors, Redbull and more!
Free food samples and drinks including samples of pizza, Big Bite Hot Dog® and more!
Reduced gas prices – gas price will be reduced for a limited time throughout the day.
7‑Eleven, Inc. is the largest chain in the convenience-retailing industry. Based in Irving, Texas, 7‑Eleven operates, franchises and/or licenses more than 67,000 stores in 17 countries, including 11,800 in North America. 7-Eleven was the store that made Icees and their iconic Polar Bear a world-famous brand in the late 1960s. That brand later changed to Slurpee, a frozen drink that has been enjoyed by children and adults across America for decades. Of course, this new store will feature these wonderful sweet treats along with everything else you'd expect in a modern convenience store.
In the days before the 24-hour a day stores, 7-Eleven was aptly named because it was originally open from 7 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. Of course, since those days, they have also operated many 24-hour locations. The new store in Lexington will in fact be open 24 hours a day, and seven days a week.
Applegreen USA was founded in 1992 and is an Irish company that established its U.S. headquarters in Lexington, South Carolina in 2017. Applegreen operates 299 convenience stores and gas stations in Ireland and the United Kingdom and has 113 locations in the United States.
