Once upon a time in Wyoming, you could stroll into a 7 – Eleven anytime of the day or night for a Big Gulp or Slurpee, a danger dog and an order of nachos with some sort of cheese type sauce. That ended in 1998, when the financially struggling owner of the convenience stores here in Wyoming, North and South Dakota, Nebraska sold to Kum & Go. According to wyomingbusinessreport:

“Two Corner Store locations in Cheyenne and one in Laramie are part of a $408 million deal between convenience retailer CST Brands and 7-Eleven. Seventy-six California stores make up the bulk of the sale.”

“The company operates and franchises more than 10,700 stores in North America, and globally has 58,500 locations in 17 countries”

“The cash deal is expected to close mid-summer 2016, subject to customary closing conditions, including possible purchase price adjustments."

Just remember, no "Stealin' At The 7 - 11"
