A new 7-Eleven convenience store along Lee Highway in Northwest Arlington is now open for business.
The store is located at 5747 Lee Highway in the Leeway-Overlee neighborhood, and now has signs posted in its windows looking for new employees.
The 7-Eleven replaces the longtime Lee-Lex Service Center, a fixture in the neighborhood dating back to 1978. The auto shop closed for good back in 2016.
The shop is now one of six 7-Eleven locations along Lee Highway alone, according to the chain’s website.
