Updated at 9:55 a.m. on April 23 — Gary Bowman, a senior real estate representative for 7-Eleven, told Tysons Reporter that the store plans to open this fall.
Tysons Corner Center has said on its website that 7-Eleven is “coming soon” for at least a month, but now there’s a sign outside the store — an indication that shoppers might be sipping Slurpees soon.
“We’re working on something BIG,” the sign says with a picture of a crane lifting a 7-Eleven sign. “Check back soon!”
The Japanese-owned convenience store chain will fill the former Starbucks spot next to GNC Live Well, a health product store, on the first level across from the Gap and H&M.
A spokesman for Tysons Corner Center said that he does not know when the store will open. Tysons Reporter has not heard back from media inquiries to 7-Eleven about the expected opening date and the size of the store.
If the store isn’t open by early July, customers can see if the four 7-Eleven stores in McLean and the six in Vienna will give out Slurpees, the chain’s slushie-type beverage, on July 11 — “Free Slurpee Day” on “7-11.”
The 7-Eleven website lists 724 locations in Virginia. Currently, the closest one to Tysons Corner Center is directly south of the mall at 1931 Old Gallows Road.
