Bert Cook, Executive Director of the La Porte Economic Advancement Partnership, said 7-Eleven has purchased the land where Spoors Auto Sales operated.  Cook said the 7 Eleven will also feature gasoline pumps.  “I believe they’re full steam ahead at this point and ready to start construction,” he said.
