MORRIS COUNTY — It’s that time of year again! In honor of its namesake date—and its birthday — 7-Eleven is giving away free Slurpees on Thursday, July 11. The tradition has been around for well over a decade, with the first 7-Eleven Day taking place back in 2002 as a way to celebrate the convenience store’s 75th birthday. Come 2019, the store is the ripe old age of 92 and you can once again get a free cold drink in honor of the occasion.
So as to rein in the chaos, there are a few rules you should be aware of, starting with the time limits. It’s easy enough to remember: Free Slurpees are available while supplies last between 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Thursday.
