Denver Business Journal | 7-Eleven targets Denver for growth

Those who work or live in downtown Denver can’t help but notice the recent proliferation of 7-Eleven stores.

In an effort to grow market share and boost sales, 7-Eleven Inc. — owned by the private Seven & i Holdings Co. Ltd., based in Tokyo — has opened 54 stores in the Denver market over the last three years with plans to open 20 to 25 more in 2012. It plans to sustain that growth pattern for at least the next five years.
