But for the most part, Southeast Texans have been taunted for years with commercials and advertisements in print for the elusive Slurpee. Only elusive because we were 7-Eleven poor in SETX. But that is about to change.
Recently a few local Speedy Stop locations have been bought out by 7 Eleven, the country’s largest convenience store chain. Remodels on all locations should be completed this year.
