Turlockers enjoyed 7-Eleven’s free Slurpee Day on Monday. By 1 p.m. the 7-Eleven on Geer Road had handed out nearly 600 slurpees. 7-Eleven said it expected to hand out 5 million slurpees across the country. 7-Eleven gives out free slurpees each July 11th to commemorate the convenience chain’s birthday. 7-Eleven began in Dallas in 1927.
