I find 7-11's very sterile. Way too brightly lit and generic. I always feel like I'm not in New England in a 7-11.

If they convert the one by St Theresa's to the new brand, there will be three 7-11's on Centre St in Roslindale/West Rox.

It just seems so wasteful to have to put all those numbers on a sign

Why don't they just call it 18?

Or call it 88-18 - good luck for two completely different cultures.

The logo shows a 7 being divided by the word eleven, which could be calculated as 0.63636363636363...

There's only one Arabic numeral on the sign, and six Roman letters.

7-11 may have bought out a profitable business to add to their own, but they from what I have been told they will not change much of the Tedeschi's way. I am not 100% sure about everything, but I am almost certain Tedeschi's will remain the same name, but just have a different company owning them.

that's not what happened when 7-11 gobbled up White Hen Pantry.

I wish American 7/11 is like Japan 7/11. If 7/11 here is like their counterparts in Japan with its cleanliness and better tasting food (both Japanese and American offerings), that would be awesome.

is the one in Poland. They call it 11-7

How many employees in the Polish 11-7 do you think it takes to change a light bulb?

up
Voting closed 0

Since they're likely those big fluorescent bulbs, I'm guessing two?

Given that Poland ranks higher than the US in IQ, far ahead in math, reading, and science, I'd imagine "fewer than the average American".

While I thought the 7-Elevens in Tokyo were a bit more delightful than their American counterparts, and the quality of food a bit better, I think a lot of that has to do with American food generally being absolute garbage, whereas staple fast food and snack items in Japan are not. It's a low bar they're clearing.

I could really go for some nori maki arare right about now. Perhaps I'd wash it down with one of the four thousand varieties of coffee in a can.

Those quality 7-Elevens and Family Marts in Japan come in handy when you wake up at 4:30 AM because of the time difference and you want something to eat and some coffee and nothing else opens for 2 hours. And unlike in America the food they sell doesn't even give you diabetes!

NOT GOOD, as the drugstore monopoly of CVS and Walgreens can attest, among many other examples. Tedeschis often have awesome deli and sandwich/sub sections, and better selection imo vs 7-Eleven. Now pretty much everything is owned by some mega corp out if a suburban Dallas office park.

another local chain that 7-Eleven bought a few years ago. You could have a sandwich custom-made for you at 3 am if you wanted.

Some other convenience chains no longer with us: L'il Peach, Christy's Market, Sunnyhurst Farms, Sunny Corner Farms, Store 24. Tedeschi's bought the last one, but I have no idea what happened to the other chains.

You forgot Rite Aid.

Oddly, Rite-Aid has been largely driven out of the city of Boston (only 4 locations left), but not Cambridge or Somerville.

It's an element of Lays Foods. They made a bunch of manic location grabs around here that blew up on them.A second site in Central Square and a site in Harvard Square both closed.

They probably want this lot for location value, especially in New Hampshire. They also get a bunch of sites with Beer/Wine sales options.

When I was a kid we did all our weekly shopping at the Tedeschi's Supermarket in Hanover.

One weekend, Bozo-the REAL Bozo, Frank Avruch - was there in full regalia at the front entrance promoting something, maybe the show, I was too little to know what exactly.

Anyway he tweaked my nose, and a penny fell out.

That's what I think of when someone says 'Tedeschis' even though now they mean the mini-marts

This comment made me smile. Frank is my cousin and he's just as great a person out of the makeup as he was in it.

...that the empty space at Harvard St & Comm Ave, that was supposed to be a Tedeschi's last September, will now not be a 7-11 instead?

Actually, 7-Eleven became such a successful operation in Japan, the Japanese division bought out the Americans. If you go to http://7andi.com you'll find the press release detailing how Tedeschi's is the newest subsidiary of Seven and i Holdings of Tokyo, Japan.

I wish our stores were as good as theirs!

Why this is still necessary in 2015, I don't know, but you have to go to http://www.7andi.com or it won't work.

Here's the press release you mentioned.
