It’s happening right now: As spotted by The Local’s Stephen Rex Brown (on Twitter) and Lauren Carol Smith (above), workers are installing signage at 351 Bowery, where the much ballyhooed 7-Eleven was due to open today. It’ll be a little longer before the store pits its Biscuit Breakfast Sandwich against the ones down the block at Peels: A worker on the scene says the convenience store will open “sometime next week.”
