How did 7-Eleven boost traffic 53% in one day?


Free Slurpees capture 53% more customers.


It’s not just a convenience store, July 11th is also a national holiday — at least it should be. After all, that’s when 7-Eleven gives away free Slurpees. Yum…

So, we tracked a national in-store traffic spike, using 24-7 shopper insights.

The data we used updated daily with visits to 12.5 million locations — including all outlets of the top 1,000 U.S. retailers. And here are the questions you can answer with that information:

  • Did 7-Eleven’s free Slurpees peel away customers from other convenience stores?
  • What will happen in the days and weeks following 7-Eleven customers’ big Slurpee binge?
  • What kinds of product giveaways work for a different c-store or for a quick-serve chain?
  • Will the surge in traffic be nice and sticky, or will it melt away like a cup of ice in the summer heat?

You can do this same research on any retailer or brand’s major promotion, whether it’s daylong, weeklong, or monthlong.
