There comes a time every summer when you’re at the beach, park or pool, and you think to yourself, “Gee, I could really go for a Slurpee right about now!”
Chances are, however, that if you’re enjoying some fun in the sun, you’re not going to want to hop in your car and go to the nearest 7-Eleven.
Well, now, you don’t have to, because 7-Eleven will bring your favorite Slurpee flavor right to you! It’s all thanks to the chain’s expanded delivery app called 7NOW, where you’ll find a whopping 2,000 hot spot locations that 7-Eleven will deliver to right now. Even more delivery locations will come later.
Aside from Slurpees, other items available for delivery include snacks, electronics, hot foods, beer and wine (in participating markets), cosmetics, home goods and thousands of other products available for purchase.
7NOW had previously been available in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Dallas/Fort Worth. Now it is available in 27 major metropolitan areas and over 200 cities. According to Fortune, the company has partnered with the courier service Postmates for deliveries.
Aside from home addresses, 7NOW delivery locations include parks, beaches, sports fields, entertainment venues, and other public locations that may not have traditional addresses. We’re talking places like Central Park, Mile High Stadium, Venice Beach and Fenway Park, just to name a few.
To see if the service is available near you or to place an order, simply download the free 7NOW app from your app store and when editing your delivery address, select ‘Show 7NOW Pins.’
There is no minimum order required, all orders average a wait time of just 30 minutes and the first three deliveries within 30 days are free. After your first three free orders within 30 days, there is a $3.99 flat delivery fee, and orders under $15 also have a $1.99 small basket fee. (In other words, ordering one $3 Slurpee would actually cost you $8.98.)
“Sometimes things can get inconvenient away from home,” Raghu Mahadevan, 7-Eleven vice president of delivery, said in a press release. “It could be running out of ice and charcoal at a picnic or a hungry Little League team demanding pizza and Slurpee® drinks after a big game. We continuously challenge ourselves to find even more ways to offer convenience and value to our customers — when and where people need it most. 7NOW makes ordering and getting delivery in about 30 minutes a reality for customers whether they’re at a park, a ballfield, arena, venue, and of course, at home.”
