(La Porte, IN) - Construction of a 7-Eleven in La Porte is moving right along. The gas station convenience store is going up at Pine Lake and Truesdell Avenues, where Spoor’s Auto Sales had been for over three decades.
Bert Cook, Executive Director of the La Porte Economic Advancement Partnership, said the 7-Eleven should be open no later than early next year.
“It’s great to see. We’re excited to see them continue to move forward,” he said.
The 7-Eleven in La Porte will look much different than other stores in the chain. A new building design used sparingly, so far, by the store chain was requested by the city to complement the aesthetics of the city’s lakes and natural resources.
Cook said 7-Eleven should do very well at what he called one of the most heavily traveled corners in the county.
