As the largest store chain in the country celebrates its 85th Birthday today, it invites guests across the U.S. to the party.
If you need a cool treat, drop by either of Evergreen Park's two and grab a free 7.11-ounce slurpee drink from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. while supplies last. Party guests will also receive mini party apparel -- tiny bowties, tiny hair bows, tiny party hats all in honor of the big birthday celebration.
In town, there's a 7-Eleven at 99th Street and Kedzie Avenue, and at 3440 W. 95th St.
Since 2002, the company has given away millions of free Slurpee beverages on July 11th. Officials at 7-Eleven estimate this year to be the biggest birthday to date as they prepare to give away 7 million free Slurpee drinks.
Additionally, 7-Eleven’s Slurpee drink is celebrating 45 flavor-filled years today, "making the day a double brainfreezin’ good time."
Each store also invites customers to peel, play and win with Big Summer Sweeps’ game pieces found on specially marked products throughout the store--through the end of August. Customers may win big prizes like a PepsiMax VIP trip package to the football championship or a BMW Motorbike F800 GS.
