D’oh! I knew I was going to post about how close together 7-Elevens are. Held off until I thought I’d located the closest two. Of course, it was just a few days until I found two located such that delivery trucks can service both from the same parking spot.
Makes perfect sense to me why how both can stay in business. This is Soi 88, a road that crosses the railroad tracks. The area near the next crossing to the south has nothing resembling a 7-Eleven and the next crossing north is a long way off. Here there is one on your side of the road whether coming from or going to town.
