MarketWatch:

After shattering both its international and domestic store growth records last year, 7-Eleven, Inc. is in line to have an even bigger year in 2012. The world’s largest retailer by units added more than 4,600 stores worldwide in 2011 and plans to continue the company’s accelerated growth.

Some 600 additional stores were built, acquired or transitioned from another business to the 7-Eleven® brand in the United States and Canada alone during 2011. This year, 7-Eleven’s goal is to exceed that number by adding at least 630 new stores to its U.S. and Canada roster by year end.
