Miami’s 7-Eleven Stores on Comeback Trail

by Isaac Benmergui, Esq on December 20, 2012

CoffeeDonutIf you thought you just passed a 7-Eleven as you’re winging your way to your Miami office, you’re probably right. The familiar stores that once dotted the country, are on the comeback trail, especially in Miami. Three new stores have popped up in the Miami business district in recent months with a fourth under construction in west Brickell and the fifth going up in a historic South Beach location.

The chain, with a few changes is relevant again. These stores are focused on foot traffic. You won’t find parking spaces, or the larger stores of old. Much like corner stores of the past, the new 7-Elevens are smaller and more focused on the customers’ desires of fresh, grab-and-go foods, and even a wine selection. The stores still operate ’round the clock with sleek designs to lure downtown residents, office workers and students.

The downtown Miami locations are roughly 1,800 square feet, with sophisticated designs and interiors finishes that fit into the retail, professional and living spaces that surround them.

“They much more reflect that cosmopolitan feel, especially in Miami,’’ said Grant Distel 7-Eleven regional development manager. “You will find that every one looks just a little bit different.’’

All stores carry a selection of fresh fruit, salads, pastries, pizzas, wraps and sandwiches, plus the staples of American coffee, chips, jerky, grilled hot dogs and, of course, Slurpees.
