The 7-Eleven project comes at a time when 7-Eleven is enlarging its footprint in and around The Villages. The former Shell station at Colony Plaza has been transformed into a 7-Eleven and the same thing is happening at the former BP station on the Historic Side of The Villages. In that case, the Lady Lake Commission forced the developer of the project to accommodate a historic live oak which was to have been cut down to make room for a car wash.

In Wildwood, 7-Eleven took over the convenience store at the intersection of State Road 44 and U.S. 301. Also, a new 7-Eleven has opened up on County Road 466A across from Pinellas Plaza.

A 7-Eleven will also be constructed at Magnolia Plaza in the southern end of The Villages.
