Downtown 7-Eleven expanding

7-elevenrenovationOne of Colorado City’s 7-Eleven locations is undergoing a major overhaul, and when the dust settles, the store will be bigger and better than ever, according to Alon USA representative Blake Lewis.
The convenience store on 2nd Street downtown has been seeing lots of action lately, as it undergoes a major renovation. What began as one of the national company’s smallest stores will transform into a retail outlet that will be easier to access and offer more choices for customers.
Lewis said that new gas pumps will be installed in a diagonal pattern that the industry refers to as a “dive-in” pattern which is designed to allow for easier access for drivers fueling up.
Two exterior walls will be removed in the store building to almost double the square footage of the place. Lewis said that the store will feature an open-air cooler and an expanded beer cave where customers can go in and pick from a bigger selection of beverages.
Drinks are the name of the game, as the expanded 7-Eleven will enlarge the coffee and hot beverage station too. “We heard from customers that they would like more flavor choices for hot drinks,” Lewis said Monday. “It’s a very, very important part of the store.”
The extra space will allow for more retail shelves to be added, which means more inventory and a broad range of choices for customers.
“It will be a really significant change,” Lewis said.
The 2nd Street location will be closed from Friday, July 19th until Saturday, August 2nd. Employees will be packing up merchandise, getting ready for the newly renovated store.
Store manager Tina Compton is nervous and excited about the changes that are coming for the store. “I’m looking forward to getting it (the renovation) done and getting into the new place,” she said. “I think our customers are really going to like it when it’s finished.”
