7-Eleven has opened its first location inside a shopping mall in the United States.
The Westfield Brandon c-store in Florida is the first of seven locations 7-Eleven plans to open in malls this year.
The latest 7-Eleven will be open from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Sundays.
Charles Bantos, 7-Eleven director of corporate development in the US said the company’s entry into shopping centres was aligned with its strategy of meeting customers when and where they most needed them.
In March, the retail chain opened the first of six new test stores in the Dallas area. The convenience store features a taco restaurant and a café serving coffee drinks, made-to-order smoothies and shakes, among other beverage offerings.
