Friday’s Grand Opening for the new Lincoln Heights 7-Eleven began a little slow, and the DJ and Laker Girls may have wondered if anyone would show up. No worries. Once the final civic representative arrived, the ribbon was cut and samples were offered. It happened to be the same time Lincoln High School let out, and word spread via phones and twitter that there were free Slurpees nearby.
As for 7-Eleven, the North Broadway Business District is the kind of location they hope to expand into, as part of their seven-year corporate business plan to take back their convenience market domain. Still, this on-the-spot report shows community outreach by 7-Eleven and business development by Councilman Ed Reyes office is the point of the new store. At the end of the video, the most popular ambassadors of Los Angeles offer some goodwill to the neighborhood.
7-Eleven is located at 3201 N. Broadway, in Lincoln Heights.
