Your Lawton Stripes Are Giving Away Free Slurpee’s
While it's not regular common knowledge in this part of Oklahoma, every July 11th 7-Eleven celebrates its birthday by giving away free Slurpee's. They literally call it Slurpee Day. As Stripes is now affiliated with 7-Eleven, they're giving away free Slurpee's too.
With the current state of the inflated economy, free is a good thing.
While the Texas-original convenience store conglomerate is more prevalent in Oklahoma City, we get to partake in this celebration through association even though 7-Eleven doesn't own any of the Oklahoma Stripes stores.
After a few calls, I was reassured (and just taking their word for it) that your Lawton Stripes would honor the free Slurpee offer, all you have to do is download the 7-Eleven or Speedway app and use the free Slurpee reward... but there is a chance it won't work.
While I'm just fine with taking Stripes word for Slurpee Day being a thing at your Lawton Stripes locations, it wasn't without some serious internet digging that I'm sharing this with you.
Why? Because while 7-Eleven owns a bunch of Stripes stores, it doesn't own the Oklahoma Stripes locations... so it's free Slurpee's by association.
In a bid to expand the empire, 7-Eleven bought out a bunch of Stripes and Speedway locations across Texas and Louisiana but they couldn't reach a deal with the Stripes locations in Oklahoma, New Mexico, or the remaining North Texas Stripes locations. It had everything to do with non-competes from within the company.
The workaround was creating a shell company (not to be confused with Shell) to pick up the remaining Stripes locations, now all sharing free Slurpee's by association. Whew...
If you download the 7-Eleven or Speedway app, make yourself a small Slurpee, and walk up to the counter, they'll scan your app barcode and give it to you for free... or at least that's what I was told.
It's still ridiculously hot in Southwest Oklahoma, take your comfort where you can. There's a Stripes conveniently located somewhere near you.
