Yesterday in the comments of a posting on Sixth Engine a reader suggested a 24-hour 7-Eleven convenience store would be opening at 4th & Mass NW. I don’t have any concrete tips from local interests to verify the voracity of this rumor. But it does appear that CB Richard Ellis, the landlord of Mass Court, is linked to a planned national expansion by 7-Eleven corporate. The retail space at Mass Court also easily fits the footprint desired by the franchise.
Is this a good addition? I’ll be the first to admit I frequently enjoy the convenience at the 400 Mass CVS and am no stranger to their late night hours. But what does the 7-Eleven offer us that the CVS doesn’t already? Slurpees and Taquitos? I’d probably stick with the self checkout of CVS if a new 7-Eleven wouldn’t offer more to distinguish itself.
