To use the 7-Eleven store locator, a user must enter the name of her city or her ZIP code, as well as the radius from that location that she is willing to travel. Users can chose a radius between 5 miles and 3000 miles.
The store locator can be found on the 7-Eleven home page. It lists all of the 7-Eleven stores within the selected radius and lists features available at each store. The locator specifies whether the particular 7-Eleven store offers hot food, beer, wine, ATM, lottery tickets, Redbox DVD rentals and propane tank refills. The store locator also specifies whether a particular store accepts SNAP benefits, formerly known as food stamps.
The 7-Eleven store locator uses a map to highlight exactly how far each store is from the selected location, and provides driving and walking directions via Google Maps. The locator also provides the telephone number for each store within the selected radius. If a user has specific questions about a store, she can contact the store using the provided telephone number.
Most 7-Eleven stores are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, but if any store is closed at certain times the store locator provides information regarding closing times.
