7-Eleven to Mass Court?

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.

    Not sure what you have against Slurpees and Taquitos — or the more popular large-size fountain drink smorgasbord and the fill-it-yourself / mix-your-own-flavor coffee bar (with 99-cent refills). CVS is a great place for convenience items; 7-Eleven is a great place for convenience foods (especially when you just need a drink or don’t need a ginormous burrito).

    I don’t have anything against slurpees. I just think 7-Eleven is mostly redundant in product offerings to CVS. The only extra they offer, as you say, is the convenience food. I’m not expecting much price competition either…

    I would love a 7 11 in the neighborhood – CVS customer service is awful…and 7 11 is quicker in customer turn around. Also it would be another place for coffee people to pick up some coffee
