In Newington, CT, and many sorrounding towns there's about 3 7-11 stores in each town.

That colonial 7 Eleven store looks like a lot of the 7 Elevens that opened in the Philadelphia area in the early 1960's, but before they were modernized into today's 7 Eleven.

7-Eleven is the main C-store chain here...too bad there are very few "bodega" like stores here, along with non 7-11 c-stores.

Bad management ran it into the ground. He almost lost all 3 restaurants. Supposed to be opening a much smaller location in Southington at 131 Center Street.

7 Eleven opened on Queen Street in Southington, CT on Tuesday Afternoon April 3rd, 2012. This building was Papa Gino's than Burgger's Bagels, and most recently until May 2011 Randy's Wooster Street Pizza.

Sorry for the lousy picture. It was taken from the parking lot in the Shoprite Plaza across the street.

I wish there were more of these in Upstate NY but we are dominated by Stewarts... it'd be nice if they bought cumberland farms or xtramart... compared to them 7-Eleven is pretty cheap..

yeah I'd lean more towards them buying xtramart. Xtramart sucks their pizza is basically inedible it is like a cracker with greasy toppings on it. I like how 7-11 at least uses frozen pizza and prices it right not fantastic but good when your in a pinch..

Strange. They opened a 7 Eleven in a small little strip mall near the corner of Wolcott Street and Lakewood Road in Waterbury, Connecticut.

There's not a lot of 7-11 here and I think they'll be squeezed out by  Wawa and Thornton's. Both of them are rapidly expending here.

Yeah. They've been open 2 years and 2 weeks now and it's a big failure. This store does little to no business. Not really sure why. I like it. It's much nicer than most 7-Elevens and definitely nice than the Cumberland Farms just up the street. Maybe it does so poorly because it doesn't have a gas station attached to it. One of my friend's thinks it's on the wrong side of Queen Street. Not sure what that means because there is a traffic light with a left turn lane to turn into the store.  It's  hard to turn left onto Queen Street when you leave the store if there's a lot of traffic coming out of Shoprite Plaza. I was there today and overheard the manager (or maybe he's the franchise owner) talking to a repairman about the business.

7-Eleven hasn't had any stores in Wisconsin since the 1990s.

Their only Wisconsin locations were in Milwaukee. They've since been converted to Citgo stations. It seems that Kwik Trip and Kwik Star dominate Wisconsin and Minnesota with their large convenience stores.

Other convenience stores in Wisconsin include Speedway, Holiday Station Stores, Marathon, Fox Convenience, Pit Row, BP Shop, Express Convenience, Dino Stop, Mobil Mart, Shell Food Mart, Oneida One-Stop, Grand Central Station/Grand Central Depot, Exxon/Mobil On the Run, etc.

Our 7-Eleven stores were Christy's before reverting to the 7-Eleven name. Since they returned they've done little or nothing to expand or renovate. Cumberland Farms has been the most aggressive in making over their stores, with Circle K doing the most acquisitions.
