“Everyone knows that the PlayStation 5 console launch has been one of the biggest headlines in the gaming world the past few months,” said 7-Eleven’s Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Marissa Jarratt, in a statement. “The ultimate gamers’ console warranted an experience just as exclusive in our newest 7-Eleven Evolution Store – our ultimate retail environment.”
