Big news! 7-Eleven wants to open three new stores in downtown Detroit by the end of this year, Crain's is reporting. The chain is "negotiating four to six sites around the Renaissance Center and Comerica Park." It was reported last summer that 7-Eleven had plans for up to six stores in the Downtown and Midtown neighborhoods, but solid plans for Midtown have yet to be announced. The Detroit locations could come online as soon as late summer, but a debut closer to the end of the year sounds more likely.
