7-Eleven Opening in Sight

(La Porte, IN) - It took several months longer than expected to complete the construction of the new 7-Eleven on Pine Lake Avenue in La Porte with supply chain issues cited as a major factor in the delay.  However, products are now filling store shelves in preparation for the convenience store to open their doors to customers next week.


Bert Cook, Executive Director of the La Porte Economic Advancement Partnership, said the opening could be as popular as when Aldi began seeing customers recently across the street.


“At Aldi, they had 300 plus people lined up around the building.  We were happy to be able to share that experience with them.  I know 7-Eleven will be popular as well so we’re looking forward to that,” he said.


7-Eleven will open for the first time next Tuesday.  An official grand opening ceremony is planned two days later.
