KERNERSVILLE — The 7-Eleven store at 1005 S. Main Street is holding a grand opening after changing hands ownership.
Reginald Noble, a resident of Winston-Salem, recently took over the franchise for the store. Noble is a 20-year retired Navy veteran who has been with 7-Eleven for 12 years as a store manager.
The grand opening celebration is planned for Sept. 20. The store opens at 10 a.m. with a ribbon-cutting followed by a fresh food sampling that includes everything from pizza to wings to new chicken dippers. There will be free fresh-brewed coffee and Big Gulp drinks.
Neighborhood 7-Eleven stores are typically franchised by local entrepreneurs, who are members of the community where they operate their stores.
“Reginald has a formidable history with 7-Eleven. It is exciting to see him taking over this store, and we are confident that he will thrive here,” said Brian Mulcahy, franchise sales representative.
Visitors will be invited to sign up for 7Rewards, the 7-Eleven customer loyalty platform that rewards customers with a free beverage for every six cups purchased. 7Rewards counts every 7-Eleven beverage – hot or cold, from small to large – served in a 7-Eleven cup toward the seventh free. To participate, customers must use the 7-Eleven’s mobile app, available in the iTunes App Store or Google Play, and register as a member.
