Golden 7-Eleven set for closure

The Golden 7-Eleven, located on the corner of 9th Avenue North and 10th Avenue North is closing down.

The store that never closes will be shutting its doors for good in January 2013.

The Golden 7-Eleven, located on the corner of 9th Avenue North and 10th Avenue North is closing down.

“The lease for our Golden store location expires at the end of January 2013. Unfortunately, we were not able to reach an agreement to renew the lease,” said Laurie Smith, marketing manager for 7-Eleven Canada.

All staff members at the Golden location have already been notified of the closure.

“We wanted to ensure employees heard the news internally first,” said Smith.

7-Eleven was unable to give specifics, but they did confirm that  discussion with the landlord, and internal discussions about closing down the location have been taking place for a long period of time.

“It was a very difficult decision for 7-Eleven to make. We have been in the Golden community for 25 years and this was a popular store. We greatly regret that we were not able to come to an agreement to continue our service to the local community,” said Smith.

Having said that, the company is already looking at other options to keep the franchise in town.

“We are absolutely looking for another location. We have experienced great support from the Golden community, so we hope to be back soon,” said Smith.

“We have very much appreciated the community support we have received over the past 25 years from the Golden community and it’s a relationship we want to continue. We want to able to bring the Slurpee back soon and let our guests enjoy our quality, convenient service.
