Another 7-Eleven in Petaluma?

What do you think about the new 7-Eleven on the corner of North McDowell and East Washington?


7-Eleven is the typical convenience store.

You can stock up on gum, chips and hot dogs when passing through, use the bathroom and ATM and buy a Slurpee.

Petaluma already has five of them: at Petaluma Boulevard South and Fourth, on Washington and Howard, on North McDowell near Old Redwood Highway and two more at Perry Lane near the marina and on Lakeville Highway.

But this month, a new 7-Eleven opened in Petaluma on North McDowell and East Washington, next to a 76 Unocal, delighting some residents and drawing criticism from others.

What do you think? Are six 7-Elevens for a town our size too many? What else would you have liked to see at that location? 

Chime in in the comments below.

Wow! I was gonna say a city can never have too many 7/11s!-then I read CPs posts you almost influenced me with your thoughts but then your extreme aggression became apparent and I now find your comments not credible. I think that 7/11 will do well its in a good spot. But then again my kids each have slurpee refill cups because its a fun, simple treat. So we are 7/11 fans.

The government should be involved, regulating how often we can be visiting a 7/11 store. It's readily clear we cannot choose for ourselves. The future of our children's health is on the line. Washington knows best, lets defer to our wise leaders.

This is why I think it should be an Apple Store.

Yes, we need an Apple Store, A new laundry mat that is clean, modern, and doesn't rip you off. What ever happened to For The People - By The People? Oh, that's right - MONEY and GREED.
