7-Eleven Is Offering FREE Slurpee For One Day Only This Week For Their Birthday!

July 11th is just around the corner, and it’s time to get excited about 7-Eleven Day!

Celebrate their birthday with a free small Slurpee from 7am to 11pm at any of the 40+ 7-Eleven locations in Metro Vancouver.

This deal is only available in-store only.

With the current heatwave, there’s no better way to beat the heat and relive childhood memories than with this icy treat.

The Slurpee has been a Canadian favourite since 1969, when the first one was poured in Calgary.

These bone-chilling -2.2 degrees Celsius drinks (okay, maybe not that bone-chilling) have been cooling Canadians off ever since.

Invented by Omar Knedlik at his Kansas hamburger stand in the 60s, the Slurpee quickly became a sensation.

Ever wondered why it’s called 7-Eleven?

The name came from the store’s original hours of operation, 7am to 11pm.

Even though many locations are now open 24/7, the name stuck around, making 7-Eleven a staple in street slang and convenience store culture.
