All is Quiet on the 7-Eleven Front
Less than a half-hour after San Mateo High students are dismissed for the day, none are loitering around the 7-Eleven convenience store on the northwest corner of E. Bellevue and N. San Mateo Drive.

All is NOT quiet on the 7 Eleven front. I do believe that may have been the case in the time the author of the article was there but that ignores:
(1) Serious and dangerous traffic concerns which residents have photographed and alerted police to; (2) loitering at various times of day by people of all ages; (3) Outrageous noise late at night and very, very early morning from very large delivery trucks; (4) the unhealthy options in the store FAR OUTWEIGH the few pieces of fruit in the store; (5) 7 Eleven has applied for alcohol license transfer (is that good for a neighborhood with many children, incuding teens, 24 hours a day???); (6) 7 Eleven said they would not be open in this neighborhood 24 hours a day, and soon after opening a sign proudly proclaims "OPEN 24 Hours".....shame on them for NOT telling the public the truth!!
Now it is 7 Eleven and PDP's turn to do the right thing or risk a lot of bad press as they sue 7 Eleven customers, and potential customers in San Mateo.
The only parties that will gain will be 7 Eleven and PDPs attorneys, who actually seemed to many of us to look not too displeased at all at the end of the last City Council meeting (they are not fools, they see the $ signs and billable hours rolling in at PDP and 7 Eleven's expense!!)
7 Eleven and PDP: Do the right thing, close this store. Save yourself from the very bad Public Relations AND save yourself the hefty legal fees.
