This year 7-Eleven celebrates their 87th birthday, and this is the 12th year that 7-Eleven has offered free Slurpees. Their intention is to build long-term relationships, while reaching short-term sales, and plan on handing out over 7 million Slurpees nation-wide.
“Every year on 7-Eleven Day, we take the opportunity to thank our guests for their patronage throughout the year,” Gordon said, “This year we’re saying thanks in an even bigger way with eight days of free stuff,” she also makes no apologies for offering free, nutritionally empty products, “It’s our birthday. Everyone eats ice cream and cake on their birthday.” Happy Free Slurpee Day!
