“7-Eleven has celebrated its birthday on July 11 for decades, but it wasn’t until its 75th birthday in 2002 that its stores began hosting birthday parties coast-to-coast with free Slurpee drinks for its customers.” (Source: 7-Eleven.com)
How to Celebrate
You can celebrate 7-Eleven day by visiting a 7-Eleven store for a FREE small Slurpee drink. In previous years it was an 7.11 ounce cup. This year it is a full 12 ounces, almost double the previous years’ size. The Free Slurpees will be available from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time on Thursday, July 11, at participating 7-Eleven stores in the U.S. and Canada.
To celebrate this day, we selected the 1978 7-Eleven Cola Can. The design on this can is blue and orange with the 7-Eleven logo, plus a white psychedelic pattern along the bottom of the can.
Happy 7-Eleven Day (7/11)!
