7-Eleven is bringing summer back.

It may not be beach season, but that’s not stopping 7-Eleven Canada…

On Saturday, Nov. 7 (11/7 – the reverse of 7-Eleven’s 7/11 birthday), 7-Eleven is bringing back summer for one day only by hosting a national Slurpee Beach Party.

Slurpee fans are being challenged to hang-up their winter clothes and get into their bathing suits.

If they do, they’ll get a free, medium Slurpee to complete their cool beach experience.

The promotion, run nationally for the first time this year, will be at all 7-Eleven stores from B.C. to Ontario.

Medium Slurpee drinks will be available between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 7, or while stocks last.

“We think it’s fun to disrupt things once in a while and what better way than with a beach party in winter and on the reverse of our birthday,” said Raj Kapoor, vice president and general manager, 7-Eleven Canada.

“We are pretty sure we’ll see a lot of our customers across the country getting into the spirit of Slurpee and braving the cold. It’s going to be quite the occasion, especially if our markets are experiencing some low temperatures.”

Customers can share their beach day fun on social media by posting a photo of themselves enjoying a Slurpee in their beachwear using @SlurpeeCanada and the hashtag #SlurpeeBeachParty.
