If you’re a regular follower at all of Houston Historic Retail then at some point you’ve seen our coverage of 7-Eleven’s return to Houston which at some point has been a bit contentious. It all started with a post back in February of 2020 when there was scant evidence of 7-Eleven’s return, which had been in progress since 2014! However, by early 2021 7-Eleven had made great strides in not only converting existing locations but in building their own locations as well as noted in a post from January of this year. Another great stride has been reached with the conversions of Raceway stores, which has been ongoing since late 2020 and was again covered earlier this year. With the rate of expansion in Houston exponentially increasing, Stripes stores have recently been seen dropping their name in favor of 7-Eleven, although that’s a post for another day. Today we’re taking a peek at what a completed Raceway conversion looks like, on Houston Historic Retail, 7-Eleven Watch!
While I don’t have any photos of the Stripes conversions just yet, I do have some teaser photos to leave you with! Before getting to those though, I do post a question dear reader, are we at point where we consider 7-Eleven having “made it” in Houston again? They were definitely at a saturation point their first time around in Houston, we haven’t hit that by far, so where does that put us?
