Finally, a real reason to move to Tribeca (aside from great schools, fantastic restaurants and that new Whole Foods store): the neighborhood's 7-Eleven is now open for business at 140 Church Street. The convenience mart offers an array of Slurpee flavors (Mountain Dew, Coke, Blue Raspberry, Cherry), and dirt-cheap taquitos and hot dogs as well as your standard-issue bodega items like unhealthy-looking pre-packaged pastries and sandwiches, candy bars and sodas. Demand is already outstripping supply: when we dropped by this afternoon, staffers were busy refilling drained Slurpee tanks while a line of customers waited patiently and one Big Gulp machine was out of service.
