VANCOUVER, Oct. 1, 2019 /CNW/ – 7-Eleven Canada has announced the arrival of two new convenience stores at YYC Calgary International Airport. Open 24/7 and located in the Domestic Terminal, Concourses A & C, both stores will serve travelers and airport employees who are quickly on-the-go, as well as those waiting to pick up loved ones.
“Whether you are a domestic traveler, an airport employee or are awaiting the arrival of a loved one, we are excited to be adding a convenience factor to the YYC community with these two new locations,” says Vice President and General Manager of 7-Eleven Canada, Norman Hower. “We want to provide travelers and employees with an easy, 24/7 solution for last minute meals, souvenirs, flowers or travel items.”
The newly open stores are conveniently located as you arrive to take off for a flight, or as you step off the aircraft offering a wide variety of “hot from the oven in minutes” pizza, wings and hot snacks, fresh to go sandwiches and meals, and thirst-quenching beverages. Travelers, visitors and airport employees can enjoy an endless variety of hot beverages at 7-Eleven’s coffee bar and can grab a classic Slurpee for the road. Freshly cut flowers from fellow airport retailer, A Touch of Petals, are also conveniently available at these stores for family and friends greeting loved ones.
“We are so happy to celebrate the arrival of 7-Eleven Canada at YYC. The brand is globally recognized and has close community ties to Calgary – being home to a Slurpee’s first pour in Canada 50 years ago,” says Rob Palmer, CFO and Vice President Finance, The Calgary Airport Authority. “Our guests asked for changes to our Eat and Shop options and one of the ways we’re delivering is with this partnership with 7-Eleven.”
