"7-Eleven is making a significant, multimillion-dollar investment in western New York and has recommitted to serving the convenience needs of area residents," said Mark Senay, 7-Eleven's operations director. "Our intent is to provide the best of both Wilson Farms and 7-Eleven stores for the benefit of our guests."
The converted stores are located in Buffalo, Tonawanda, West Seneca, Lockport, Niagara Falls, Lancaster and East Amherst, N.Y. Two more stores in Cheektowaga are slated to be completed by the end of this year, with the remaining stores expected to be finished in 2012, according to the report.
Changes include new signage and paint, changed aisle configurations and equipment upgrades, along with "power cleaning." The stores also now offer Slurpees and other proprietary 7-Eleven products.
Three of the stores will become training sites for Wilson Farms employees who will manage and staff the new 7-Eleven stores, reported the News.
Ten existing western New York 7-Eleven stores are also scheduled for upgrades by the end of this year.
