A 7-Eleven spokeswoman, Margaret Chabris, said by e-mail that the company had decided that “a high concentration of young adults and young families on a budget” made the East Village a good spot to open stores.
“We want to make the lives of neighborhood residents better by offering a dependable and convenient environment with value-priced goods,” she wrote. “If we fulfill that mission, the community will support these stores as they have in other areas of New York City.”
