Broken: List of 7-11s in Hawaii

711mapA blogger in Hawaii, who claims to live down the block from a 7-11, goes on to the 7-11 corporate website to see all the 7-11s in his area.

Even though there are dozens of 7-11s in the state of Hawaii, the closest store listed in the website would be a very long and difficult drive.

Thanks to Brad Fitzpatrick for the entry.

Here's the original blog entry.


He could just take the tunnel, duh. That's why they built it, so if you start jonesin' for a Slurpee you can get one in just 36 hours.

And I thought the nearest ones to me were a long drive...

This is almost as useful as mapquest!

on that original post someone typed this:

A classic example of a company that doesn't take a customer's perception into account. is run by 7-Eleven corporate (Dallas, TX). 7-11 in Hawaii is a 'licensee' and merely licenses the use of the name and logo.

The site only shows corporate/franchisees not licensees. It is a very clear distinction to the company, but imperceptible to the consumer.... a point that seems to be lost by the folks that chartered the web-site.

I wonder what would happen if you asked for driving directions.......*shudder*

_@_v - it won't actually give you directions from hawaii - just locks into an enter data loop...

at the bottom it says "(NOTE: like any driving directions/map you should always do a reality check and make sure the roads still exist, watch out for construction, and follow all traffic safety precautions. This is only to be used as an aid in planning.) "

" out for construction, major bodies of salt water, ...."

Now you know the answer to the old question, why does Hawaii have Interstate highways?

The store locator page says "

Just type in the City, State/Province, and/or Postal Code, and select the Country".

The "Country" drop-down list shows USA and Canada. So I tried to enter my Canadian postal code, and discovered that the "Postal Code" field accepts only five characters; Canadian postal codes are six characters (seven if you include the space in the middle).

I bet you, if you were the Thunderbirds living on Tracy Island, and needed a Slurpee or just a quick on-the-go food or non-food item, then getting to the Half Moon Bay 7-Eleven has never been easier! I'm saying this because in the 2004 movie Thunderbirds, look just after TB1 and TB2 pass the Golden Gate Bridge. There will be a map showing an arrow pointing from San Francisco to Hawaii, about the same route where you can get to the "nearest" 7-Eleven and back!

That's nothing. I just went to the Zenith Electronics website and this is the nearest dealer from zip code 77841 (College Station, TX): ON THE WAY TO AUSTIN!
