There’s a chance to cool off on Thursday.

7-Eleven is celebrating its 44th birthday in Canada by serving up free 12-ounce Slurpee drinks while stocks last. For Vernon, this means that 4,500 12-ounce Slurpee drinks are up for grabs on the big day.

“We’re always looking at ways in which we can do more to give back to our loyal customers,” said Tim Donegan, vice-president of 7-Eleven Canada.

“We’ve been listening to what they’ve been saying and the main thing is that they want more Slurpee.”
