Passersby by waved and drivers beeped as the demonstrators expressed concern about the noise, loitering, and trash often associated with 24/7 businesses. Carrying signs with the messages "No 24/7 7-11," "No One Wants 7/11 Here," and "We Will Never Patronize," the demonstrators made it clear that they believe Glen Head is an inappropriate place for convenience store businesses that stay open all night.
The site is currently owned by Sunoco. 7-Eleven has expressed strong interest in locating a convenience store on the lot. A local developer is in contract to purchase the site, reburbish it, and lease it to a tenant who would operate a 7-Eleven store. According to the developer, the 7-Eleven company would require round-the-clock operation.
