CORNELIUS — A conditional-use request made last October to expand an existing Sam’s Mart and turn it into a 7-Eleven store is finally headed toward a decision in this north Mecklenburg town.
The town last week scheduled the request, by Dallas-based 7-Eleven Inc., to go before the town Board of Commissioners for an up-or-down decision on June 3, according to the town’s web site.
The sale of the 1-acre Sam’s Mart site at Magnolia Estates and West Catawba Avenue requires splitting a tax parcel and securing a conditional-use permit. The land is already zoned village commercial.
The conversion is part of 7-Eleven’s purchase of 55 Sam’s Marts throughout the Charlotte metro area.
The new 7-Eleven will be a 3,030-square-foot store. It combines the existing 1,843 square feet from the Sam’s Mart with 1,187 square feet from the planned expansion.
Officials for 7-Eleven did not immediately return calls.
