DALLAS — Continuing an expansion in the Southeast, 7-Eleven this week announced plans to add at least 80 stores in the Jacksonville, Fla., market over the next three years, with at least 20 scheduled to open by year-end.
The new stores would represent the convenience chain’s return to Jacksonville after a 20-year absence. The company said it plans to open its first location in Jacksonville early next month and expects each of its stores to generate at least $100,000 in annual sales and property taxes for the city.
7-Eleven earlier this year announced an expansion in Charlotte, N.C., via a 55-store acquisition. The company operated in that market last in 1988.
