The convenience store company known for the Slurpee and Big Gulp is moving into the Upstate with the purchase of nearly 50 conveniences stores.
The Dallas-based company bought 46 stores from CB Mart Inc., who owns Hickory Point and Palms stores across the state.
7-Eleven already bought 55 Sam's Mart and 13 Fast Track stores that closed in 2012, bringing more than 100 7-Elevens to South Carolina.
The company said they will offer employment to existing store personnel and will eventually provide opportunities to local entrepreneurs who would like to operate a 7-Eleven franchise.
Upstate 7-Eleven stores will be located in Abbeville, Anderson, Belton, Blacksburg, Calhoun Falls, Clemson, Clinton, Donalds, Greenville, Greenwood, Greer, Iva, Laurens, Moore, Pelzer, Piedmont, Seneca, Simpsonville, Spartanburg and Taylors. There are more locations closer to the Midlands as well.
The change-over process including remodels, employee training and new sales systems will begin later in 2013.
