When they first arrived in Australia, my mum used to call 7-11 “4-7-11”, because the TV jingle went “Thank heaven… for Seven Eleven!”
In Swanston Street, just a few doors down from the 7-11 on the corner of Flinders Lane, is a fake 7-11: the 24-7 Cafe, with a colour scheme that is similar, but not identical to, a real 7-11. I wonder how many people walk into the 24-7 without looking carefully, and assuming it’s a 7-11?
- Wikipedia: 7-Eleven — wow, they’ve been going since the 1920s, with the name first being used in 1946.

PS. Everything I said last year about petrol prices at Easter still applies.
