The New 7-Eleven Will Open...

The new 7-Eleven store at the intersection of Route 130 south and Highland Avenue is slated to open Oct. 24, according to a communications official with the popular convenience store. 

Scott Drake, of the finance and communications department for 7-Eleven, Inc., said there's still some construction going on at the store, whose address is 407 Route 130 South.

The store is slated to open Oct. 24 with a grand opening event some time in early December. 

The store is owned by Lehigh Gas Corporation, a group based in Bethlehem, Pa. It holds partnerships with several gas station companies including Mobil, Hess and Gulf. 

The new 7-Eleven will not feature a gas station.

The store is around 3,000 square feet and will hold 18 parking spots. The 7-Eleven at the Route 130 and Riverton Road jug handle will remain open.
