Seeking Nontraditional Spaces, 7-Eleven Coming to Tysons Corner Center This Fall

Convenience store 7-Eleven plans to open in Tysons Corner Center this fall — a move that is part of the Japanese-owned chain’s plans to break out of its familiar facade.

Gary Bowman, a senior real estate representative for 7-Eleven, told Tysons Reporter the company is looking to venture into “nontraditional sites.”

“We’re such a large brand,” Bowman said, adding that 7-Eleven wants to provide its services in more than just the standalone buildings customers are used to seeing. The new concept for the stores includes eyeing malls with high traffic counts, he said.

Calling Tysons Corner Center “a fantastic mall,” Bowman said that its set-up and diversity of offerings appealed to 7-Eleven.

The convenience store will occupy roughly a 1,600 square-foot-space on the first level of the mall and expects a fall opening, he said. “The permitting process is moving along, but not like we’re used to seeing it.”

Right now, the spot is getting ready for construction, he said. Once finished, the new 7-Eleven store plans to have tables set up outside for people who want to stop to enjoy a sandwich or drink before heading back into the mall.

The 7-Eleven website lists 724 locations in Virginia, with four in McLean and six in Vienna. If you don’t want to wait until the fall to sip Slurpees, the closest one to the mall is at 1931 Old Gallows Road.
