7-Eleven has filed a development plan with the city of Marble Falls to build a 4,433-square-foot store at 1901 U.S. 281 South at FM 2147 East. The scheduled opening date is the summer of 2021.

The chain is a Lone Star State staple, tracing its origins to 1927 when Jefferson Green started selling everyday items and food from the dock of a Dallas ice house, creating the first convenience store. 

In 1946, the chain was named 7-Eleven to reflect its operating hours of 7 a.m.-11 p.m. seven days a week.

Now, 7-Eleven operates, licenses, and franchises about 10,000 locations in the United States and Canada, and more than 67,000 worldwide, including two other local stores in Horseshoe Bay and Kingsland.

  1. I have to say, this intersection is probably the most wreck-prone location in Marble Falls. VERY POOR decision to build a convenience store here!!
