ARLINGTON (1080 KRLD) - An iconic convenience store sets up shop in a most unique location.

7-Eleven has opened its doors to its newest location at Texas Live! in Arlington.

“7-Eleven has been known for, we always want to give the customer what they want when they want and how they want it,” says Charles Bantos, director of corporate development. “Now we're going to add where they want it.”

Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams was very impressed when he saw the store for the first time.

“Trying to be convenient for our citizens and our tourists here was the idea, and it is a really beautiful store,” says Mayor Williams.

At 700 square feet in size, it’s noticeably smaller than a typical 7-Eleven store.

“We had to be very, very particular about what we put in the store because obviously we have many, many more items in a normal 7-Eleven,” says Paula Young, Fort Worth market manager. “So we picked the items that we thought they would be most relevant to the visitors here for the special events.”

But 7-Eleven’s most iconic offering will be in plenty of supply.

“Our goal is to have that ever flowing Slurpees and never be out,” Young says.
