7-Eleven, Inc. is set to acquire more than 100 independently run 7-Eleven stores, all of which are located in the greater Oklahoma City metropolitan area.
Store network to exceed 9,700 after acquisition
At the end of November 2019, 7-Eleven, Inc in North America (U.S and Canada) had 9,631 stores (including franchised and directly operated stores).
