Tysons’ new 7-Eleven plans to host a grand opening party tomorrow (Friday) for customers.
Located on the first level of Tysons Corner Center, the convenience store will celebrate with festivities, including activities and free food from noon-4 p.m.
Attendees can expect a DJ, face painter and games, Todd Putt, a spokesperson for the mall, told Tysons Reporter. He added that the grand opening will also offer samples of sandwiches, brownies and fresh-baked cookies.
Construction for the location began in back in the spring.
The convenience store normally carries a range of items from personal care to food. A sign indicated that 7-Eleven applied for a license to sell alcohol.
Regular hours of operation for the new location have not been finalized yet, Putt said.

It might not be the national holiday from the week before, but National Free Slurpee Day is coming up on Thursday, July 11.
The event is 7-Eleven’s celebration of its unofficial birthday. Stopping by a 7-Eleven between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. will allow the visitor to receive a free 12 oz Slurpee while supplies last.
Below, Tysons Reporter has put together a map of 7-Elevens around the Tysons area to stop by for a free Slurpee. Also, stay tuned for more information on the new 7-Eleven planned at Tysons Corner Center this fall.
If you get a brain freeze from your Slurpee, National Day Calendar advises you to press your tongue against the roof of your mouth, cover your nose and mouth with your hand, and breathe through your nose — allowing warmer air to circulate through your sinus passages.
