7-Eleven store under construction in Statesville

  

Record & Landmark
A 7-Eleven convenience store is under construction in Statesville. Another could be under construction soon as well. The site under construction is located at 234 Turnersburg Highway, the previous home of FastMed, which has since moved across the street.

The chain was founded in 1927 as an ice house storefront in Dallas, TX and now has over 68,000 locations worldwide. They were the first to provide to-go coffee cups, offer a self-serve soda fountain, operate for 24 hours a day, and yes, we even coined the phrase “BrainFreeze®” in honor of the world’s favorite frozen drink–the Slurpee.
