7 Eleven Giving Away Free Slurpees for 7/11/11!
It’s 7/11/11 – which is a special day for Slurpee lovers! Convenience store 7 Eleven is celebrating its 84th birthday aka 7 Eleven Day by giving away 5 million 7.11-ounce frozen Slurpee drinks while supplies last.
According to Hampton Roads, “Slurpee-brations” and 7-Eleven birthday parties will be held at select stores with music, entertainment, prizes and food sampling, and Slurpee-mobiles will provide free samples at select 7-Eleven stores across the country.
“7-Eleven Day and giving away free Slurpee beverages is our way of thanking customers for their patronage throughout the year and showing appreciation for their support,” said Jesus Delgado-Jenkins, 7-Eleven’s senior vice president of merchandising, marketing and logistics.
”Five million is the most Slurpee drinks we’ve ever given away in a day; just two years ago, we handed out 3 million,” he added. “7-Eleven Day is synonymous with free Slurpee day, because of how popular the Slurpee giveaway has become. We’ve been serving free Slurpees on July 11 since our 75th birthday in 2002, and it continues to be a hit with customers. People start asking about it in the Spring. Even without the 5 million free Slurpee drinks, July is the biggest month of the year for Slurpee sales. What better drink for the hottest month of the year.”
