The company that introduced convenience retailing to the world is celebrating its birthday with "7-Eleven Day," which is July 11 (7-11, get it?).

To celebrate its birthday, 7‑Eleven is offering free Slurpees, continuing the tradition that started on the retailer's 75th birthday in 2002.

Participating U.S. stores will give away an estimated 9 million free small Slurpees from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, the company stated.

7‑Eleven is also having the (hot) "dog days" of summer, with $1 Big Bite hot dogs on its July 11 birthday. Plus,  7-Eleven will do it again on National Hot Dog Day, July 18.
