Where can I start. I feel like I'm picking on them because like most consumers, I've come to expect the convenience store experience to be somewhat underwhelming. But since this is location specific, I can comment on what THIS location does that could use improving.

They are reliably there for the late night munchies or the all important item you missed or ran out of during a holiday when the land is barren of any other merchants. 7-11s are true to their mission - they are always open!

That being said, it seems this location tends to function on a somewhat lethargic attitude about how snappy service is supposed to be in one of these joints. Understand that I don't expect 4 star service, but far too often one person is left to fend for themselves and even then, like at the local post office, they make the average snail seem like The Flash the way they move in the face of a log jam. The whole reason we take the hit on price going to these establishments is the privilege to grab and go with minimal wait time. I've learned that if I pull up and see a near full lot - and that is only about 7 or 8 spaces - I keep on trucking.

The counter coverage is also an ebb and flow, but it appears to have little sync with the pace of the traffic. I'm sue they are trying, but like most worker bees in the retail job market, the company policy has you trying to run around and do an endless variety of duties at the same time, and I'm sure it is unnerving to try to run do something and here comes a wave of customers just seconds later. But as one of the said customers, I am not supposed to empathize. I suspect that the lottery side suffers because they know we bettors will wait.

Just about every 7-11 now has a NJ Lottery terminal, and I appreciate that this one has it separated enough from a register so that IF they would just have enough personnel in place, neither side has to be waiting on the other. True, if you are buying groceries AND want to play lottery, it is convenient if as you ring up your goods, you can play lottery in one transaction. But often there is a line at the lottery side. If there is an attendant working the numbers, it has to be considered a world onto itself. I often hit the lotto line first, then pick up at my leisure the assorted snacks that are no good for my waistline.

What really sticks in my "craw" as the old saying goes, is those Lottery operators in any merchant anywhere that have no special savvy for "crunch time" - the countdown to the suspension of the terminals as the mid day and evening drawings. I definitely try NOT go to this location if I'm playing it last minute - trying to get in my numbers for an impending drawing. I'll take my chances if its a long line, and/or customers are verbally rattling off a string of bets with no end in sight. What is unforgivable is that most of the staff (except for one nice lady I might have the good fortune to catch on duty) is rather clueless about the urgency of the last minutes before a drawing. Too often that happens to be the time only one person is available, though that only means that someone is on break in the back ( someone is always in the back!) or stocking shelves, emptying garbage, etc. My fault, I need to get before its crunch time, but darn it, when it IS crunch time, IT'S CRUNCH TIME!

As for 7 Eleven's self produced food, I had long ago divorced myself from being THAT desperate for a grub. That was school days when quality was secondary. The chain has made efforts to improve the offerings, and if you time it right, the hot dogs might be at their peak, and the newly added pizza on display might make you get impulsive. As food impulses go, 7-11s are the snack addict's Las Vegas. And I really do wish I could say that the age old problem of the picture in the window NOT matching the end product was different here, but it's sadly not. I've seen the smallest wings I have ever seen this side of KFC. The best seller on a hot day remains the trademark Slurpee, and I see they have a sugar free, and in Teaneck, reflecting the population demographics, a kosher Slurpee variety. How "we are the world"-ish of them! I tried both for the hell of it and the sugarfree type boasts the "Crystal Light" brand - another marketing deal that ignores the fact that the taste makes me make a face like Uncle Fester in the opening of the old Addams Family TV show. Crystal Light has a knack for profoundly foul tasting beverages and drink mixes for some reason. Just my opinion but that's what this site is asking for.

7-11s any and everywhere should been ashamed of trying to get a penny shy of 6 DOLLARS for brand themed versions of those little rubber bands that are in shapes that have become a phenomenon. Toy Story my eye - when its on the kid's wrist it's stretch out like the dollar store generics. But that's good old American hucksterism....please come again!
