Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Have you noticed the number of 7-Elevens popping up around town? Often right across the street from an abandoned 7-Eleven that turns into a neighborhood eyesore? Bree Davies did, and wrote about it yesterday on our arts and culture blog -- inspiring quite a conversation about 7-Eleven, urban-planning and fast-food journalism.

Says Chris:

Rather elitist statement and extremely sub-par journalism.

Says Debbie:

Walgreens also does this.....builds a new store across the street from an old store that will sit vacant and looking like shit.

Says Notaxationwithoutrepresention:

7-11 is a stoner's mecca.....Chili cheese nachos with loads of jalapenos on top, a Big Gulp, and a fresh chocolate frosted donut for desert....What more do you want in life?

And finally, from James Gold:

If only 7-11 were as classy as Dunkin' Donuts...

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
