“Adding these appealing locations in Virginia complements our store-development strategy of acquiring retail sites where we currently operate stores,” says 7-Eleven’s vice president of development.
This June, 7-Eleven Inc. signed an agreement to operate six convenience-store locations in Virginia from Workman Oil Co. of Lynchburg, Va.
The stores, located in Roanoke and Salem, are being re-branded as 7-Eleven operations. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“Adding these appealing locations in Virginia complements our store-development strategy of acquiring retail sites where we currently operate stores,” said Dan Porter, 7-Eleven’s vice president of development. “It also enables us to provide consumers with high-quality, value-oriented fresh-food offerings and further leverage our regional daily-delivery distribution network.”
These six Apple Market convenience stores will remain open during remodeling, and stores will be equipped to sell 7-Eleven signature products, like fresh food and grill items, coffee, Slurpee and Big Gulp beverages. The locations will eventually be offered for franchise. In the interim, 7-Eleven has provided employment opportunities to current, qualified store personnel.
This brings the number of 7-Eleven stores operated and franchised in Virginia to just under 700 stores. The new 7-Eleven locations are at:
3202 Peters Creek Road – Roanoke
5002 Plantation Road – Roanoke
2035 Roanoke Boulevard – Salem
200 Apperson Drive – Salem
1715 E. Main Street – Salem
2723 W. Main Street – Salem
