Convenience stores are so inconvenient, which is why 7-Eleven is teaming up with DoorDash in five major U.S. cities for delivery services. Along with regular items, though, 7-Eleven will be offering “convenience packs” themed toward a customer’s particular needs, including a “Hangover Pack” and a “Date Night Pack.” They are calling it “Doordash & chill,” because they’ve got their finger on the pulse.
711 is starting to deliver hangover baskets including the following items: Gatorade, pizza, Advil and sandwiches.. Whatta step for mankind— Scott Docherty (@scottdoc15) September 16, 2015
The packs vary by location, but all contain similar items. The Hangover Pack in New York City includes a sausage, egg and cheese croissant, a 28oz gatorade and extra-strength acetaminophen, while one in LA switches it for both an egg salad sandwich and a pepperoni pizza.
Having friends over for the big game? The Gameday Pack features buffalo wings, soda, Doritos and Tostitos. And your date night would not be complete without Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, a chocolate bar, Red Bull, Trident gum and a pack of condoms.
It’s a pretty genius new service, especially given all of these packs hover around $15-$20. When was the last time you spent that on a date night?
We only hope that 7-Eleven expands their convenience pack offerings. There could be the “Just Got Dumped” pack (6 donuts, a 40 oz, and a voucher to trade back your unused condoms for a frozen lasagna). The “I Forgot My Parents Are Visiting” pack (Windex, roach spray, economy-size bottle of Febreeze). Even the “Currently Drunk” pack (12 monterey jack chicken taquitos, five packs of gummi worms, a large pizza, and two chocolate cupcakes). Though, really, the drunk ordering would probably be clicking on everything that looks good until you fall asleep at your laptop…
