Craving a Slurpee from but lacking the motivation to interrupt your sunbathing?
7-Eleven launched a delivery service Monday that will send a Slurpee or almost anything else carried by the chain to public places ranging from beaches to parks.
The company told The Associated Press that more than 2,000 7-Eleven 'hot spots' including New York's Central Park and Venice Beach in Los Angeles will be activated Monday.
Customers need to download 7-Eleven's 7NOW app and select 'Show 7NOW Pins' to find a hot spot close by.
7-Eleven believes it will eventually be able to deliver to 200,000 hot spot locations, said Gurmeet Singh, the company's chief digital information and marketing officer.
Dominos launched a similar service last year, delivering pizzas and more to more than 150,000 public locations.
The company had begun delivering to homes last year when it started getting delivery requests to places away from home where getting a bottle of water may be more tricky, Singh said.
