Another 7-Eleven will be coming to Tyler soon. 

The city of Tyler issued a building permit for a 7-Eleven to be built at 3400 Van Highway. 

The project has value of $968,400, according to the city's permit records. 

This comes after an announcement earlier this year that Kidd Jones locations across East Texas will be rebranded to become 7-Elevens. 

In addition to those locations, a 7-Eleven is also under construction at the former site of T.G.I. Fridays at 4300 S. Broadway Ave. The restaurant closed in June 2019 after 20 years of business.

7-Eleven is headquartered in Dallas with many locations across America, including 1,226 stores in Texas, according to the 7-Eleven website.


I came to the Tyler Morning Telegraph in September 2019. I report on crime, courts, breaking news and various events in Tyler and East Texas.
