It’s noon on a Sunday, you’re hungover, and you’re in need of some major grub to revive your inebriated ass. At this rate, you probably won’t make an appearance in public today (don’t worry, we’ve all been there). If only you could get some comfort food delivered straight to your door. Now that would be convenient, right? Well don’t worry, your favorite convenience store is coming to the rescue.
The masterminds behind the Slurpee had another brilliant idea. It’s called 7-elevenNOW and it’s a new app, separate from the 7-Eleven app, that lets hungry fans order-on-the-go for either delivery or pickup, according to a press release. Basically, you can order just about anything from the app that you’d see in-store — think Slurpees, junk food, hot foods, medicine, makeup, phone chargers, and alcohol straight to your door. Customers will be charged $4.50 as a delivery fee and regular price for the items, which will be displayed on the app before purchasing. Customers can also order on the app and pick up their items at the register in-store.
But for all you underage kids thinking you can just easily order Four Lokos and whatnot, don’t get any ideas. When purchasing alcoholic beverages, the app makes you take a picture of the front of your license or passport, then scan the back of the ID to verify your age.
Currently, the service is only offered in Dallas but plans to expand to more U.S. locations in 2018. You can currently download the app, put in your address or auto-locate, and vote to have 7-ElevenNOW come to your city next — I’m rooting for you NYC. All in all, it’s a pretty neat concept, and great for when I’m in dire need of Tacitos but do not want to trek to my local 7-Eleven and run people I know from high school.
And as expected, there are no complaints on this new initiative:
To all my peeps in Downtown Dallas/Uptown area, DL the @7Eleven Now app. Order delivery/pickup right from your phone! Our Slurpee drinks were still cold and snacks for the office!! #startuplife pic.twitter.com/vdkus9SWqP— Ana Santellana (@anamarie84) December 6, 2017
What would be the first thing you’d order from the app if delivery service was launched in your city? Let us know in the comments below!
