Pandemic leads 7-Eleven to forgo free Slurpees on 7-11
DALLAS The coronavirus pandemic has taken away another summertime tradition in the U.S.: There will be no free Slurpees at 7-Elevens on Saturday -- July 11 -- to hail a date that doubles as an abbreviation of the convenience store chains name. 7-Eleven has been giving away its slushy beverage to all customers for nearly 20 years on July 11, but it scrapped the promotion this summer to reduce the risk of people flocking to its stores and risking contracting the coronavirus (COVID-19). The Dallas-based chain instead decided to donate 1 million meals to Feeding America, a hunger relief group. The roughly 33 million people who had 7-Elevens membership app installed on their smartphones as of July 1 are also eligible for a free medium Slurpee at any time this month.
