Free Slurpee Day

Free Slurpee Day

Any excuse for a Slurpee is a good thing in our house, with temperatures hitting over 30 degrees celsius and crushing local records it’s no surprise that British Columbians are clamoring for ways to stay cool! Well, you’re in luck! July 11th is 7-Eleven Day! As a way of saying thanks they are offering FREE 12oz slurpees to the first 1500 guests in store from 11am-7pm.

Want to be part of the world’s coolest birthday party? Then head to your nearest 7-Eleven store on Saturday, July 11 (7/11). In what has become a highly-anticipated tradition, 7-Eleven Canada is treating its customers to a free 12oz Slurpee on its 46th birthday. All 7-Eleven stores from B.C. to Ontario will serve-up 1,500 12oz Slurpee drinks between 11:00 am and 7:00 pm on Saturday, July 11, or while stocks last.

Free Slurpee Day

To ensure the celebrations are even more fun and memorable than ever before, 7-Eleven, in partnership with Mountain Dew, will be creating the world’s largest Slurpee (711 litres). Customers who head to Winnipeg’s newest location (at 119 Salter Street) will get to witness Slurpee history being made while also seeing Manitoba get presented with the Slurpee Cup once again. Manitoba is the Slurpee Capital of the World for the 16th consecutive year, retaining the top spot from close competitors, Calgary and Detroit.

“We wanted to do something bigger and better than ever before and you can’t get much bigger than creating the world’s largest Slurpee,” says Raj Kapoor, vice president and general manager, 7-Eleven Canada. “Equally, we’re giving away nearly ¾ million Slurpee drinks across Canada celebrating 7-Eleven’s birthday – it’s going to be some party.”

Winnipeg will also see the world’s longest Slurpee Run take place this year. Ultramarathon runner, Scott Burton and a team of enthusiastic runners and Slurpee drinkers are going to attempt to run 71.1 miles on July 11, visiting all 45 stores in the city. For photos and updates, visit:
