I drive by my local 7-Eleven in Richland almost every day.

This particular 7-Eleven is located at Jadwin and Van Giesen in Richland. Just the other day, I noticed the doors were boarded shut. When did this happen? Where have I been? I did notice a while back, and even posted about it, that there were locks on the door.

Not that I was ever a raving fan of the famous 7-Eleven Slurpee or anything, but I have been known to purchase a snack every now and then from my favorite neighborhood store. I purchased gas on occasion and thought nothing of it when the pumps were torn out. I thought something better was coming. I wasn't prepared for the store's closing down.

After further investigation, 7-Eleven may be re-branding. According to the job site, Indeed.com, there are several openings for 7-Eleven employees. They're looking for several positions, including cashiers/customer service, sales associates, and assistant managers for locations in Richland and Pasco.


And, on 7-Eleven's website, they're indeed looking for a store manager.

However, currently, there are a few 7-Eleven Stores that remain open in Tri-Cities.

Both of the Richland 7-Eleven locations have Slurpee machines. Remember, the Slurpee King of the World store in Kennewick was shut down in 2021. At one time, the store was famous for selling thousands of Slurpees a day! We also went on to post the 8 Businesses Perfect to Replace Kennewick's Former 7-Eleven.
