We’re getting word via West Side Rag that a 7-Eleven on 93rd Street and Amsterdam Avenue has suddenly closed with no further explanation. Let’s hope it has nothing to do with 7-Eleven’s human trafficking ring. Anyway, writes West Side Rag:
A reader wrote in that she started noticing some weird developments at the store starting on Sunday: “I popped into 7-11 Sunday night to grab some seltzer water and they had none. Then I noticed all the shelves were sparsely stocked. I asked one of the employees if they were closing and he said they were just doing inventory this week. On Wednesday night I noticed the lights were out, shelves and equipment mostly removed and signs on the door directing people to the store at 96th and Broadway.”
This closure comes just days after the residents of Red Bank and New Providence, New Jersey protested and successfully prevented two new 7-Eleven locations from opening. Is 7-Eleven finally getting the message they’re not needed here?
