7-Eleven Cancels Free Slurpee Day Because of Coronavirus Concerns
My girls and I love going to 7-Eleven every once in a while for a Slurpee. And we LOVE 7-Eleven Free Slurpee Day, we’ve been going every year for the past few. Unfortunately due to coronavirus concerns 7-Eleven announced to day that it is canceling Free Slurpee Day this year. It’s the first year they’re gone without Free Slurpee Day in almost 20 years.
In a news press release 7-Eleven Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Marissa Jarratt said “At 7-Eleven, our top priority is the safety of customers, franchisees, and employees. Gathering nine million of our closest friends in stores on one day just didn’t feel right.”
7-Eleven typically celebrates Free Slurpee Day on it’s birthday (7/11) by giving out free small Slurpees to customers who stop by. This year instead of the free Slurpees 7-Eleven says it plans to celebrate it’s birthday by donating one million meals through Feeding America to support communities that are in need.
