7-Eleven has acquired the White Hen Pantry brand in New England and plans to convert the franchise into 7-Eleven stores, including the North End store on the corner of Hanover St. and N. Bennet St.
This will result in two 7-Eleven chain stores closely located to each other on Commercial Street. An existing 7-Eleven is operating at the corner of Hanover and Commercial Streets.
7-Eleven previously purchased the White Hen Pantry brand in 2006, however, a legacy franchising agreement with New England Pantry of Norwood, MA continued the White Hen franchises in New England. Last week, 7-Eleven acquired New England Pantry which clears the way for the existing 55 White Hen stores to be re-branded as 7-Elevens.
With the acquisition, 7-Eleven will operate 170 franchised stores in the Boston area. The 7-Eleven press release indicated that all White Hen Pantry stores will be remodeled as 7-Eleven stores.

What a shame – the White style is so much better than the 7-11 they should just leave it as it is and change the name…….
Yuck! Who owns that building and can we have the lease revoked?

Sorry to see a big chain just get bigger. This equals less choice for shoppers.
Dan, the store proprietor, said that he is (at the very least) trying to keep his deli counter.
Having Dan still there makes me feel a little better. But two 7-11s on Hanover St????
