Last winter, Southland Corporation began franchising its 7-Eleven stores. For Susan Lipes and her husband Rob, this was the chance of a lifetime. Qualifying for the opportunity to buy a store was very time consuming and arduous. Susan had first choice on any of the stores in the Valley. It was not a hard decision to choose the Grandin Village store to become her store. As a franchisee, Susan has the choice of many of the products offered, which includes a new and more extensive wine and beer selection. She also employs five full-time and seven part-time staff.

We strive to take care of our customers that have supported us all of these years. "The happiest place to be" is our motto!
