Thirsty? 7-Eleven has announced that it’s going bigger and better than ever before to celebrate its 44th birthday in Canada. The convenience giant is giving back to its customers on its birthday (7/11 – or July 11), by serving up hundreds of thousands of free Slurpee drinks.
Stores from B.C. to Ontario – 485 in total – will be cooling thirsty customers down by each giving away 1,500 12-ounce Slurpee drinks, while stocks last.
For Surrey, this means that 9,000 Slurpee drinks are up for grabs on the big day.
The giveaway is one of the largest of its kind in Canada, marking not only more than four decades of growth in the country but also the brand’s 86 years in existence.
“We’re always looking at ways in which we can do more to give back to our loyal customers,” says Tim Donegan, vice president for 7-Eleven Canada. “We’ve been listening to what they’ve been saying and the main thing is that they want more Slurpee. This birthday, for the first time, we’re giving away larger Slurpee cups (12oz as opposed to the usual 7.11oz) and more of them. Every store will have 1,500 to give away instead of our usual 1,000. That’s a lot more Slurpee drinks.”
