Charlotte, NC - 7-Eleven signs with the words coming soon are popping up around Charlotte. The franchise is taking over 55 Sam's Mart stores and converting them to 7-11's. Speaking of the conversion, Jeff Edge with the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce says, "A lot of people are gonna look at it and say hey it's a great place I can go get my slurpee, but for other people who are out there who are unemployed, its another opportunity for a job." 120 of them to be exact. That's on top of the people being kept on from Sam's Mart. That's just in the short term, long term, Edge predicts even more expansion and more jobs.
