YORKTOWN, N.Y.-- The rising temperatures and a love of Slurpees caused the Yorktown 7-Eleven to run out by Monday afternoon.
Store manager Ramzi Bash explained that the sample size given out on free Slurpee day, 7/11/11, are 7.11 ouncesand that his store ran out sometime before he got into work at 5 p.m.
I feel so bad, you know? I hate to deny people a slurpee if they love it so much, and people love slurpees, he said in between ringing up customers who decided to buy their own slurpees instead.
Ramzi said he couldnt even estimate how many slurpees had been give away throughout the day.
Hundreds at least, several hundreds Im sure, Bash said. Im disappointed too -- everybody loves slurpees, but the weather made them go way too quick.
Did you make it to 7-Eleven in time to get your free Slurpee yesterday?
