DALLAS and FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The first 7-Eleven® store located behind security inside a U.S. airport terminal has taken off at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport (DFW) with a first-class selection of products and services tailored to travelers and airport employees. The store is open from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. to best serve travelers.
7-Eleven created an exclusive, value-priced "snack pack" containing a small bag of multi-grain pita chips, white cheddar cheese and salami sticks, a pouch of pitted green olives, a dried-fruit blend, thin chocolate cookies, Gummi bears and a butter mint.
