One Big Gulp, please. Another American tradition got its start in the Big D – convenience stores. 7-Eleven pioneered the idea when the one-time ice company began selling milk, bread, and eggs as a convenience to customers. The first store opened at Edgefield and 12th Streets in the Oak Cliff neighborhood on July 11, 1927, and now boasts more than 5,600 outlets across the US.
