    (CNN)Health officials in Salt Lake County, Utah, are warning residents that an estimated 2,000 of them could have been exposed to hepatitis A at a local 7-Eleven convenience store. People who visited the location in West Jordan between December 26 and January 3 could be at risk if they used a restroom in the store or consumed certain food items, according to the Salt Lake County Health Department. "The possible hepatitis A exposure occurred when an infected employee worked while ill and potentially handled certain items in the store," the department said on Sunday. The case is believed to be...

    Oh, thank heaven for drones. 7-Eleven, one of the world's largest chains of convenience stores, has completed 77 delivers via drone to customers in Reno, Nevada. The deliveries were made in collaboration with Flirtey, a commercial drone startup that began working with the retail chain over the summer. In November, Flirty made regular deliveries from a 7-Eleven store in Reno to a dozen select customers who used a custom app to place orders, the company said in a release Tuesday. Popular items for drone delivery included hot foods, cold beverages and over-the-counter medicines, said the company. On average, orders were...

    7/11, 9/11, it’s all the same to Donald Trump. The billionaire — who never visited the Sept. 11 Memorial & Museum in lower Manhattan until months after his campaign kicked off —seemed to have briefly forgotten the date the terrorist attack happened. “I wrote this out, and it’s very close to my heart,” he said at the First Niagara Center on Monday night during the rally. “Because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I’ve...

    After an armed man pointed a gun at the head of 60-year-old convenience store clerk Ibrahim Rahmoun, he and his boss grabbed a gun and took action leading to an exchange of gunfire outside a Northwest Side 7-Eleven. “The guy shot two bullets at us,’’ Rahmoun said. “We shot back at them. We shot eight.’’ “I wasn’t scared. ... I don’t care, it doesn’t bother me. When you work the night shift, a lot of robberies happen’’ said Rahmoun, who was at the counter when two men entered the 7-Eleven at 2900 W. Montrose Ave. about 1:25 a.m. Friday and...

    ObamaCare ads will now appear on 7-Eleven receipts at more than 7,000 stores nationwide as government health officials expand their outreach in the second year of healthcare sign-ups. Information about ObamaCare sign-ups will appear on the bottom of receipts for anyone using a mobile payment company called PayNearMe, which allows bank-less customers to pay in stores like 7-Eleven and Family Dollar. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell announced the new partnership with the tech start-up PayNearMe on Thursday at a store in Washington, D.C. “Putting these reminders at the bottom of PayNearMe receipts will help get health...

    The mortal stabbing last month of a Linfield College student at a 7-Eleven near the McMinnville campus appears to be a random attack, and three officers were cleared in the fatal shooting of the assailant minutes later, the Yamhill County District Attorney's Office announced Monday. Authorities released more than 170 pages of police reports detailing interviews from investigations into the Saturday, Nov. 15, stabbing of Parker Moore, 20, of Woodinville, Washington, and the officer-involved shooting of Joventino Bermudez-Arenas, 33, of McMinnville. No motive has been determined for the stabbing of Moore, a Linfield College football player, by Bermudez-Arenas, a tree-farm...

    Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, on Sunday unsurprisingly defended Hobby Lobby, the company challenging the rule under Obamacare that for-profit employers' health plans must cover contraceptives for female employees at no extra cost. But in his defense of religious liberty, Dolan incorrectly claimed that women already have access to widely available contraceptives at "any shop on any street in America," namely 7-Eleven. “I would be inspired by the Hobby Lobby,” Dolan said on Sunday's "Face The Nation." “I think they’re just true Americans. They’re saying, look, the genius of America is that religious convictions affect the way...

    Gang Founder Claimed Innocence Until the End By KIM CURTIS, Associated Press Writer Tue Dec 13,11:26 AM ET SAN QUENTIN, Calif. - Stanley Tookie Williams maintained his innocence right up until his death, even when an admission of guilt may have spared him execution. ADVERTISEMENT Even after the courts and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger rejected a flurry of Williams' last-ditch appeals before his execution early Tuesday, his supporters vowed to prove his innocence. Williams, the Crips gang co-founder whose case stirred a national debate about capital punishment versus the possibility of redemption, was executed Tuesday morning for killing four people in...

    For nearly a decade, a band of cybercriminals rampaged through the servers of a global business who's who: Among the victims were 7-Eleven, Dow Jones, Nasdaq, JetBlue and JC Penney. Prosecutors say the hackers stole "conservatively" 160 million credit card numbers, and the dollar value of the crimes they helped facilitate is enormous — just four of the victims are out $300 million. The suffering caused to identity theft victims was "immeasurable," say prosecutors. On Thursday, five of the gang's members were indicted. One is in custody in the U.S., a second is awaiting extradition in the Netherlands, and three...

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — A man in Daytona Beach called police from a 7-Eleven convenience store, and when an officer arrived at the scene, Daylen Holloman, 20, would not explain why he called authorities, according to an arrest report. The report states that Holloman was taken outside and the officer asked him several questions, including "What's going on?" "Who are you?" "Where are you from?" He replied, "I don't know" to all of the questions, except one. When the officer asked Holloman, "What do you know?" he replied, "I know I'm a monkey." The officer then said Holloman removed his...

    Twice in the past week, victims have defended themselves during attempted crimes with gunfire. In the latest incident, a masked man walked into an Oceanfront 7-Eleven early Tuesday morning, flashed a gun and demanded money, according to a police news release. The clerk, who was working with his son, responded by walking to the register and pulling out his own gun. When the would-be robber made an aggressive gesture, the clerk fired, striking the man, who fled from the store at 3908 Atlantic Ave., according to the release. About a half-hour later, around 1:30 a.m., a man suffering from a...

Detectives are exploring the possibility that the suspects in this incident had been attending a birthday party in the area. The police department...
  • 7-Eleven thankful for free presidential press (Slurpees)

    Global convenience store chain 7-Eleven has been getting some free advertising for its signature drink, the Slurpee, from none other than U.S. President Barack Obama. Obama has used the Slurpee -- a thick, frozen, flavoured beverage that is wildly popular with Americans -- in speeches on the campaign trail ahead of next week's mid-term elections to illustrate just how obstructionist and ornery Republicans can be. At a rally at Bowie State University in Maryland this month, Obama said that while his Democratic Party was sweating and pushing to get the U.S. economy out of a ditch, "the Republicans . ....

    It’s a good thing someone in Basalt is paying attention. The victim of the Basalt 7-Eleven armed robbery spotted the knife-wielding, illegal alien in a local gin mill and called him in. Amazingly, the Basalt cops couldn’t find the felon, who was living in the trailer park next to the store he had robbed. Makes one wonder if Basalt’s boys in blue could find their butts in the dark with both hands. Twenty-five years ago, two officers did a better job than Ikeda’s dozen donut-dunkers do now. That trailer park is Basalt’s version of East Los Angeles replete with gang...

    7-Eleven Inc. CEO Joe DePinto says that customers are buying fewer six- and 12-packs of beer, choosing instead the better value 18-packs. Stores are making room in cold cases for the bigger packs. The Dallas-based convenience store chain has a bird's-eye view on how everyman (or woman) is adjusting. Some more economic indicators from 7-Eleven: • Customers are moving to $10 prepaid phone cards from $20 ones. • In the beverage aisles, people are buying cheaper beer during the week. Premium picks up on the weekends. And they're using refill mugs more to save on that daily cup of coffee....

    Most of you with a 7-11 'convenience' store in your local area are probably familiar with the 7-Election coffee cup voting currently in progress. These stores are found in most states, excepting the upper midwest and deep south. The company boasts: Votes are being tallied and reported each week in USA Today. 7-Election voters have successfully predicted the last two elections Whatever. Normally, I would just ignore this silly promotion, but as we well know, any indicator of Obama's inevitability is breathlessly heralded these days as the Coming of The One by the MSM, including USA Today.
