7 Eleven Free Slurpee Day: 7/7/11 (Store Locator)
July 7, 2011: Free Slurpee Day at 7 Eleven
If you like Slurpees, and if you like not paying for stuff, then you'll love Free Slurpee Day at 7 Eleven. The ubiquitous convenience store is offering free Slurpees on July 7 (7/7/11) as a thank-you to its customers.
Free Slurpee Day at 7 Eleven is honored at stores in the US and Canada. An estimated 5 million frozen, slushy drinks will be given away, not taking into account the high temperatures across the US. The Slurpee has 3.7 million fans on Facebook. The Slush Puppy only has 1,888 fans?! Can that be right?
Hospitals across North America are bracing for massive outbreaks of brain freeze.
Founded in 1927, some say that the store gets its name from its founding date. July 11 is only the company's unofficial birthday though: Originally called Tote-'em, "7 Eleven" was chosen for its reflection of being open 7am to 11pm, seven days a week. Now it seems that most are open 24 hours a day.
