BRANDON, Fla. — The first 7-Eleven store ever in a U.S. shopping center is now open in Brandon, the convenient store chain announced on Thursday.

The Westfield Brandon location is the first of seven mall stores set to open this year, the company says.

“This year we’ve opened new concept stores in sporting venues and airports to meet the convenience needs of our customers,” said Charles Bantos, 7-Eleven director of corporate development. “Our entry into shopping centers is aligned with our strategy of meeting customers when and where they most need us. Shoppers and mall employees alike can visit this 7-Eleven store to refuel with a quick snack, treat and drink, or grab one of the many meal-time options including sandwiches, salads, hot pizza, chicken tenders and entrées. 7-Eleven continues to redefine convenience for consumers, and Westfield Brandon Shopping Center presented the perfect opportunity to make the leap into a multi-store shopping venue.”

The store is located across from the Apple and Sephora store fronts. It will be open from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Sundays.

“The addition of 7-Eleven at our center caters to the daily needs of our guests,” said Katie Woolridge, Senior Shopping Center Manager of Westfield Brandon. “By adding daily conveniences such as these, we continue to give our guests more reasons to visit while creating a fulfilling shopping experience."
