7-Eleven has added its 194th c-store on Long Island and signed with real estate brokers C.B. Richard Ellis with expectations of opening more, Long Island Business News reported.
The new 2,950-square-foot 7-Eleven is located on the Jericho Turnpike.
The Dallas-based retailer has plans to open 180 stores on Long Island, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island, Gregg Carlin, a senior vice president of retail services for CBRE noted.
The company is targeting high-profile locations in suburban markets with approximately 1,700 to 3,500 square feet of prime space allowing for 24-7 operation.
“The first, ever coffee-to-go was sold at a Long Island 7-Eleven store in 1964,” Ken Barnes, 7-Eleven’s real estate manager for the northeast said southern New York said in a statement. “We have some 260 stores in this area and recognize the growth opportunity in this dynamic, high-population market.”
