7-Eleven Opens Pop-Up Shop Inside Dallas Hospital

7-Eleven has opened a hospital pop-up store at Children’s Medical Center Dallas, where the retailer will provide access to food and essential items for health care workers and patient families during the COVID-19 health crisis. The company also is working with two other hospitals in the Children’s Health system, Children’s Medical Center Plano and Our Children’s House in Dallas, offering free delivery to those locations.

The shop will include both grocery and personal care products, including take-home dairy, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent and phone chargers. Shoppers also can pick up fresh food options including salads, heat-and-eat entrees and take-and-heat pizza and wings.

The pop-up store will let hospital staff use their employee badges to pay for merchandise, in addition to traditional credit and debit checkout options. The location also will adopt a contactless mobile checkout feature that will let shoppers scan and pay for their purchases using their phones.

“The doctors, nurses and care teams at Children’s Health are true heroes,” said Joe DePinto, President and CEO of 7-Eleven in a statement. “When Children’s Health asked us to provide their team members convenient access to essentials during this unprecedented time, our team rose to meet the challenge; opening this first-of-its-kind store in less than two weeks. We are so proud to serve those on the front line of this pandemic.”
