When a new 7-Eleven store opens up in the Greater Danbury area, it's a monumental event with parades, circus animals, celebratory hats, Slurpees, and chikin.'

Cancel the circus animals, hats, and the parade, but it is a celebration because everyone loves a 7-Eleven for the convenience and the Slurpees! According to a company press release, this wildly popular XXL convenience store has introduced its new "7Now Gold Pass" subscription delivery service.

I just got word from Mayor Dean Esposito that he will be at the new Danbury 7-Eleven site at 106 Federal Road for the grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, February 11 from 12 noon to 1 pm.

What is a 7-Eleven subscription service? According to supermarketnews.com, convenience giant 7-Eleven is ramping up its 7NOW online delivery app with the introduction of 7NOW Gold Pass, a subscription program for $5.95 a month that will waive delivery fees for members.

They've partnered with Uber Eats, Grubhub, and Instacart to get you your favorite 7-Eleven items. Imagine it's a Saturday evening, and you have some friends over, and you all have an overwhelming case of the munchies. Within half an hour, you could be biting into a Buffalo Chicken Roller, Pepperoni Pizza, Steak and Cheese Taquito, Barq's Root Beer Slurpee, Big Bite Hot Dog, and Potato Wedges.
