NATIONAL REPORT — It's a day that comes but once every four years, so convenience store retailers across the country are gearing up to celebrate Leap Day (Feb. 29) with freebies and discounts on food and beverages.
7-Eleven is commemorating Leap Day by offering whole pizzas for $2.29. From 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. while supplies last, customers can purchase pizzas at the special price both in-store and for delivery through the 7NOW mobile app.
"Pizza lovers have an extra day this year to enjoy their favorite food, and 7‑Eleven is definitely making it worth their while," said Julie Whittle, 7‑Eleven director of merchandising for delivery. "Leap Day is on Saturday this year, a perfect time to celebrate, and our 7NOW service can deliver in under 30 minutes."
Irving-based 7‑Eleven operates, franchises and/or licenses more than 70,000 stores in 17 countries, including 11,800 in North America.
