This is a NAYLOR DUPONT EXCLUSIVE...
A corporate website, listing local stores, presently available for franchise, solidly confirm that SEVEN ELEVEN will be opening a new store, between Penn Branch Center’s old, broken down escalators and the H&R Block, in a space that will soon be vacated, by Beltway Beauty and Barber Supply - that's just four doors down from the CVS Pharmacy.
Several Penn Branch Center merchants have confirmed the same.
The new store will be a corporate store, meaning that it is owned by the 7-Eleven corporation - not a family or individual - and is listed as "UC" (under construction), at, "3218 Pennsylvania Ave SE...Washington DC...20020". Everyone in Penn Branch is talking about this, but, no one is reporting it. No one. Furthermore, there's nothing posted at the address, in the window of 3218 Pennsylvania Avenue, announcing the new tenant. Not sure why that is, ..but, this isn't a rumor, anymore. This - hot coffee, better donuts than Dunkin's, Jamaican-styled meat pies, subpar pizza and BBQ chicken wings - really is happening.
Furthermore, the opening of a 7-Eleven almost guarantees that PBC will NOT be getting a Seattle's Best, Starbucks, Cosi, Peet's or any other proper coffeeshop, in the immediately forseeable future.
Have a look at the listing for Store #37300, right here on 7-Eleven corporation's list of stores, available for franchise, ..and see for yourself.
