Just wondering. Doesn't look like any building activity is being done there.

Just wondering. Doesn't look like any building activity is being done there.

As with most (re-)building activity going on in the area, I suspect there are layers of insurance claims and attorneys haggling over things before they start doing anything. Heck, I'm a bit surprised we've already seen some houses rebuilt and even completed this quickly.

That was a nearly-new 7-11, so from just a personal speculation standpoint (no info at all, sadly), I'd have to think it would be rebuilt. It was one of the newer layouts with an OnCue like rollergrille area, extra other goodies as I recall, and that's a very busy intersection, so I'd be really surprised if they just let it go. If they did, I suspect an OnCue would be happy to snap that corner up..

Didn't the 7-11 hurt Jerry's business across the street? If so, I am Jerry's will be happy to see it empty

Oh GAWD the Smell!

Pretty sure 7-11 self-insures, and it rebuilding would be out-of-pocket. Not saying that they will or won't...

We were having a similar discussion in another thread here. My take, with OnCue actively searching for real estate in the Moore area (and have been for a couple of years now) it would be extremely dumb for 711 to not rebuild. Also, consider the store just west of there near Santa Fe is their oldest store in Moore now.

Edit: and don't forget the central park being built just over the interstate. I'll put it this way, if 711 doesn't rebuild on that land another gas station convenient store would gladly do it.

Has anyone heard anything else about this corner? I'm missing the station being there, it was very convenient. Would love to see an OnCue there. I wonder sometimes about the NW corner of 12th & Broadway, I can easily see an OnCue there as well (even though there's a station on the other two corners).

I have no idea. Its like 7-11 knows they need to design a better store to compete with OnCue, but they have been building the same cookie stores so long they don't know how to build anything different. Their suppose to have started building a new store on MacArthur and NW Expressway also.

7-11's new stores don't resemble those that make people (so violently, apparently) hate 7-11 and are much more like their competition. See the new store on SE 29th in Del City.

Pure speculation but it feels as if 711 is dragging their feet on this store, perhaps in part due to respect for those and the family of those killed at that location. It seems like there's a new/different memorial of some type there every week. Also they have a unique opportunity to redesign and/or increase the size of the new store, now knowing about the planned central park, the development at Fritts as well as every thing else that may be planning currently. Again, pure speculation.

Agreed. Their newest design (19th and Eastern for example) are much more like the OnCue's in design and are a bigger footprint.

For speculation I'd say it's pretty close to the heart of the matter. I've heard that 7-11 has made it clear they're going to rebuild, but because of what happened at that particular store they are being very deliberate and cautious with any plans. That said...I've heard absolutely nothing about any "whens" or "whats" might be in store.

One of the engineers in my office that deals with OnCue asked me about commercial sites along Broadway because he knew I live in the area. I haven't seen anything officially confirming it but the fact that he asked leads me to believe they may be looking at that area.

No, Jerry's high gas prices and antiquated gas pumps along with their old outdated snacks and the incense smell of the place hurt their business. 7-11 had nothing to do with it.

I miss 7-11 being there too, I hope they rebuild soon. I'm wondering if they're trying to find a way to include some type of memorial in the new build.

I miss that 7-11 too. It was extremely convenient and the place I always got gas. Now I have to drive out of my way to the one on 19th and Eastern. It seems like every other place I try has ethanol gas.

I heard a rumor that Oncue has purchased or leased the land 7-Eleven was on at SW 4th and Telephone and will be opening an Oncue there.

I heard a rumor that Oncue has purchased or leased the land 7-Eleven was on at SW 4th and Telephone and will be opening an Oncue there.

I just looked at the Cleveland County Assessor's website. 7-11 still owns the land.

I will be really surprised if that happens. That be like Burger King buying/leasing land from McDonald's or Walmart buying/leasing land from Target.

Thats a pretty silly rumor. That would have zero benefits to 7-11. Its a great location for a store. Im sure 7-11 is close to rebuilding now that they waited a year.

I can verify that OnCue is looking to build in that area but it's not going to be on the 7-11 property. So you are correct that you did in fact hear a rumor.

See my previous post, I agree there's no way 711 would hand that land over, ESPECIALLY to a competitor like oncue.

If oncue has secured land, as you guys are confirming, where at?

I just emailed the director of operations for them as that's who I've been in talks with over the past few years about the status of a Moore location. Hopefully he'll confirm what you guys are saying!

I read that OnCue had purchased the land where Central Church of Christ is currently located. When the church moves to their new building by Moore High School they will clear the lot & get started.

Not an ideal place I would imagine as it is a hard area to get to unless you are coming off the highway. I thought the best place would be at 4th and Eastern. Buy out the couple business there on the S.W. corner and get some park business when it is constructed as well as still being near the highway.

bille
06-05-2014, 01:15 PM
Also heard the rumor of oncue moving in to the church location on the corner. I also agree it's a weird location in comparison to their others.

As far as the sw corner of 4th and eastern, I doubt buying out any businesses other than defunct our perhaps some fledgling mom and pop would be to costly. Not to mention they'd certainly have to purchase some re zoned real estate from neighborhood Wal-Mart (to have enough space). If anything I could see Wal-Mart buying out that circle k so they could put in a Murphy's oil but even that's a stretch.

I agree 100% with that location for various reasons but mainly because it'd be more convenient for me. Not to mention those businesses are an eye sore. Unfortunately I'm pretty sure they'd have to procure some land from the auto shop to fit their normal layout if not buy them out altogether, also probably not cost effective if some/all parties aren't interested in relocating.

Nothing compares to having the high visibility of having your store right on I-35 and the church location gives them that. But I agree the way the streets are laid out there is kind of messed up. The city could decide to put a stop or yield sign on the I-35 frontage road to stop North bound traffic which would allow those exiting off of I-35 to access the new store. Otherwise I see a lot of accidents happening there.

If an oncue does go in there some addressing of the traffic at that intersection will eventually have to happen. There's already more traffic there now as more people are getting off there in attempt to avoid the 19th street/service road debacle.

I meant to say South bound traffic (not North) as the I-35 frontage road is one-way South bound in front of the church. The more I think about it, the only way I think it would work would be to build the store North of the existing church building, where the parking lot is now located.

bille
06-09-2014, 03:25 PM
Didn't catch that. Either way doesn't change the fact that there's already a yield sign there, has been forever. Like mentioned though nobody really pays much attention to it.

The additional traffic may require a full-on stop sign however.

If I had my guess its a combination of 7-11 wanting to build a bigger location and the city of Moore being in the early planning stages of improving that intersection.

Ah, gotcha. I guess it's just hopeful wishing lol! 7/11's have always been convenient they just always look so outdated. Even when the one on Telephone Road was built I felt it was outdated immediately. Hopefully they do something more along the lines of OnCue or something and then go and revamp their current stores. Even though it'll most likely never happen.

The Brown family still own the all the central Oklahoma 7-Eleven stores as far as I know. I used to have to deal with Steve Brown on occasion back in the 80's & 90's when he managed several of the stores. Man, what a royal jerk he was to deal with back then. But, that was a long time ago; maybe he's changed by now.

They are under completely different ownership though. They were created with the same name but have never been under the same ownership.. So I dont think it could be the same exact concept as those - its technically not even the same store. Maybe it will be similar, but I doubt its the exact same. I have a hard time believing corporate world 7-eleven will allow family owned oklahoma 7-11 to use their concept? But....I guess you never know.

All the 7 Elevens in Oklahoma are owned and operated by the Brown family, which is a completely separate entity than the 7 Elevens outside the state.

So, the concept shown in the link is for an entirely separate group than the OK ownership.

At the same time, all the concepts in Oklahoma would be under the Brown's umbrella so I'm interested to see what these new prototypes (like at NW Expressway & MacArthur) look like. I know the stores themselves will be similar in size to an OnCue.

Right, it is interesting.

The Tulsa World had an article about this not too long ago where the QuikTrip leaders stated they would not go into OKC because the Brown's helped them get started. It was just understood; no formal agreement which has obviously held up.

But now, OnCue has pretty much stepped into the big void and finally 7 Eleven is responding.

It means there will now be two big boys with these massive concepts in Central Oklahoma and I know both have aggressive expansion plans.
