You will have to drive out of town to get one, but the 7-Eleven franchise is celebrating the 85th anniversary of the chain by giving away free Slurpees today, 7/11/2012 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Customers are invited to receive a free, 7.11-ounce Slurpee at any 7-Eleven location, while supplies last, according to a release from the convenience store chain.
“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, a 7-Eleven vice president, in a release.
The chain gave out more than 5 million Slurpee drinks last year and hope to give out at least the same number this year, according to the release.
There are no 7-Eleven franchise locations in Wall Township, but several are located in surrounding towns.
