7-Eleven Opening Stores, Not Closing Them

The convenience store announced it would open 200 new stores this year. A rep said that attractive locations had opened up for the retailer that were previously too expensive.

And he said the leases it was currently negotiating carried rents more than 30 percent below the level of six months ago."
