Why is seven eleven called seven eleven?


2 Answers

The company's first outlets were named "Tote'm Stores" because customers "toted" away their purchases. In 1946, the chain's name was changed from "Tote'm" to "7-Eleven" to reflect the company's new, extended hours, 7:00 am to 11:00 pm, seven days per weekIn 1946, unprecedented at the time.
