Three Down.

It might seem that 7-Elevens never go out of business, but we now have three less in Saskatoon.  The stores on 22nd Street, Broadway, and 8th Street across from Grosvenor Mall have all closed up.  Some posters on reddit claim that problems with theft was a reason for this, but I'll take that with a grain of salt.  Of course there are still plenty around if you need a Slurpee fix. 

One I'm surprised is still in business in the same place is the one on Central Avenue.  That's one of the first, or perhaps the first, stores of the chain in Saskatoon.  I can remember going into it in the late '70s.  It's small and cramped, and has a tiny parking lot.  So you'd think it would have moved to some other location by now.  Compare it to the nearby Circle K(recently rebranded from Macs) at 108th Street and Central, which is a much larger store with more parking.
