7-Eleven serves no purpose in the East Village
There are three bodegas within a block’s distance of the new 7-Eleven, a fourth bodega one avenue to the east and a fifth bodega one avenue to the west. There are 17 bodegas in our 10003 zip code and 25 bodegas in the neighboring 10009 zip code. There is no need for 7-Eleven here despite their claims we are “under-served.”
How You Can Help
1. Don’t shop at 7-Eleven!
The easiest thing you can do! Shop at a bodega, a deli, a coffee shop, a grocery store – any place but a 7-Eleven!
2. Sign the petition!
We call on the City Planning Commission and the City Council to amend the city’s zoning text to require that no corporate formula store or bank open a new location without approval from the local community board. Sign now!
