After a 600-unit expansion in 2011, 7-Eleven is planning an additional 630 new stores in the U.S. and Canada this year, the company announced yesterday. It added a total of 4,600 stores worldwide last year. “The financial strength of 7-Eleven has enabled us to grow aggressively, even in what has been a challenging economic environment for many companies in the past four years,” said COO Joe DePinto. The retailer is also re-entering the Jacksonville market after nearly three decades. A portion of the increase in stores has come from new Florida locations. — Alexander Britell
