Slurpee Day Press Release
Happy FREE Slurpee® Day!
Stripes® Stores Celebrate July 11 with FREE Small Slurpee® Drinks from
11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
(IRVING, TEXAS) Monday, July 8, 2019 – FREE Slurpee Day is July 11, and participating Stripes® stores* will celebrate with FREE small Slurpee® drinks from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time, while supplies last. No purchase is necessary to enjoy the one-per-customer free frozen drink.
Slurpee drinks were introduced to Stripes customers last year after the South Texas convenience store chain was acquired by 7-Eleven, Inc., home of the iconic frozen drink, on January 23, 2018.
Each year, 7-Eleven gives away millions of Slurpee drinks on 7-Eleven Day (July 11 aka 7/11) to celebrate its birthday. This year marks world’s largest convenience retailer’s 92nd birthday. 7-Eleven founded the convenience store concept in 1927, when an ice dock employee in Dallas began selling milk, bread and eggs to customers as a convenience when traditional grocery stores were closed.
Fanta Blueberry Lemonade is the featured Slurpee drink flavor at participating Stripes stores. But hurry! This limited-time flavor is available until Aug. 2, or while supplies last.
*Not Available in West Texas
