Thursday is free slurpee day at 7-11 stores

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The 7-Eleven convenience store chain celebrates July 11 as 7-Eleven day, but most customers know the so-called commercial holiday by another name.

"Free Slurpee Day."

Customers can get one free 12-ounce slurpee at 7-Eleven stores on Thursday.

The convenience store conducts the giveaway in order to help boost sales of slurpees throughout the year.
