IRVING, Texas, Dec. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- “Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays” certainly rings true in 2020. Millions are changing their seasonal routines in response to the pandemic. But, with its festive red, green and orange lights shining in the night, 7-Eleven is there 24/7 to answer almost any holiday wish, with convenient, quick and easy shopping options.

7-Eleven elves have been hard at work this year. Customers can easily pick-up gifts – toys, electronics, gift cards, wine – while grabbing coffee in the morning or late at night when many other stores are closed. Whether you’re in need of a bottle of bubbly to toast good health… some forgotten ingredients for recipes like milk, eggs, bread or even juice for breakfast… a hot pizza for the kids… filling up the car for a long holiday road trip… 7-Eleven has all holiday hankers covered!

If that isn’t good enough to make your nice list, 7-Eleven has the holiday time – and money – saver you need. The 7NOW® delivery app offers store-to-door convenience with contactless delivery on request. Even better, until Jan. 3, 2021, 7NOW deliveries are FREE with the code FREE4U*. Order dinner for family movie night, beer and snacks for the big game, or – yikes! – batteries Christmas morning so the kids’ toys will work – and expect it to arrive in about 30 minutes. Even families having socially distanced get-togethers at a local park can order beverages, food, ice, cups, plates and alcoholic beverages to customer 21 and older in participating markets through the 7NOW app. Visit the App Store or Google Play to download the 7NOW delivery app.

“We’re here and we’re ready, even in these most unusual times,” said 7-Eleven Senior Vice President of Merchandising and Demand Chain Jack Stout. “7-Eleven stores are not only packed with items you need, but we’ve got some fun surprises as well. Every time a customer walks into our stores, our goal is to surprise and delight them with the numerous ways we answer their needs or help them have a little fun. And if there ever was a year that needed more fun, it’s 2020.”

Here are just a few ways 7-Eleven stores can save the day or at least help shoppers check off a few things on their to-do lists:

  • Oh boy, oh boy – 7-Eleven has Toys: Customers can pick up stocking stuffers for all ages: Mandalorian Funko POP, Hot Wheels, Fortnite Nerf Gun, TY Beanie Babies and Boos, SpongeBob SquarePants Fun Plush, Monster Jam trucks, holiday-themed candy and cookies – 7-Eleven stores have lots of choices to fill all the stockings, even charcoal!
  • Fa-la-la-las and… face coverings?: This year’s must-have fashion accessory is, of course, face coverings. So why not accessorize those gosh-awful ugly sweaters with an ugly sweater face covering? Santa, reindeer, gingerbread men, candy canes, lights, trees, dinosaurs! At just $3.99 each, the more the merrier!**
  • Gift Cards are Still No. 1: Gift cards continue to top wish lists, and 7-Eleven stores’ selection includes retailers, restaurants, general purpose, music and games. 7-Eleven stores’ selection includes some of the most-wanted – Vanilla Visa, Amazon, Netflix, Apple App Store, Google Play, iTunes, gaming cards such as Xbox and PlayStation… and of course, 7-Eleven® gift cards.
  • ‘Batteries Not Included’ and Gadget-y Gift Solutions: Premium quality electronic accessories, sold under the 24/7 LIFE by 7-Eleven™ brand, make great stocking stuffers for tech enthusiasts. Choose from Bluetooth headphones, wireless earbuds, charging pads, wired sports earbuds, and more. For those “batteries not included” toys and gadgets, 24/7 LIFE by 7-Eleven batteries are available in a variety of sizes at great values compared to national brands.
  • Holiday treats and sweets: Spruce up your holiday party with a wide assortment of holiday-inspired goodies, including:
    • Seasonal Sandwich Cookies with pomegranate crème, candy cane crème and pecan pie crème flavored varieties.
    • Holiday-inspired Mini Donuts in chocolate covered cherry and gingerbread flavors.
    • Your choice of two festive yogurt covered pretzel flavors in sweet sugar plum sprinkle and the classic red, white and green.
    • Limited edition trail mixes with flavors like butter rum toffee and sugar cookie.
    • Fiery cinnamon bear candy for spice-lovers and holiday flurry and snowman gummies for…. everyone else.
    • Candy Cane Cocoa, a hot, rich cocoa blended with cool peppermint flavor which can be topped with chocolate sauce. Prefer Coffee over Cocoa? Flavor the season with International Delight Peppermint Mocha flavored creamer.

Shopping at 7-Eleven stores has other perks as well. 7-Eleven customers can earn 7Rewards® points on almost every purchase they can redeem for free stuff.
