7-Eleven Delancey Street Kaput After 9 Years
And just like that…
There are no longer any 7-Eleven locations on the Lower East Side. The convenience store franchise at 142 Delancey Street – situated in the base of the former Loew’s movie theater – is now dark.
Signage is deposed and plywood in place.
The arrival of 7-Eleven along this bustling corridor in September 2012 caused quite a furor. It solidified a trend of chain retail over small business.
