Looks like Ditmas Park is going to get a 7-Eleven at 547 Coney Island Avenue, on the corner of Beverley Road in the former auto parts shop that has been for rent for a long time. Tipster Dan notes that the chain has filed for permits to open a store there in May 2013 (so we’ll be able to enjoy free Slurpees next July), and has it listed as available for franchising. Applications have been filed with the Department of Buildings for an interior remodel of the space, and to erect an illuminated sign on the structure (so enjoy the old sign while you can).
With the number of delis, bodegas, convenience stores, whatever you call them in the area – including one diagonally across the street from this spot – do you think this is a good use of this space?
