Free coffee will be served at the Langley 7-Eleven stores on Thursday as part of the convenience store chain's first Coffee Day in Canada.
From 7 to 11 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 29 — National Coffee Day — the store on 56 Avenue and the one in Brookswood at 200 Street and 40 Avenue — will hand out free medium 16-ounce cups of coffee, spiced pumpkin lattes and french vanilla cappuccinos.
"Since more Canadians drink coffee per capita than Americans, we felt it was high time we celebrated coffee with Canadians," said Tim Donegan, the vice-president for 7-Eleven Canada Inc.
"This is our opportunity to thank our Canadian customers for 42 years of support.
"It'll be a small thank you to our regular customers and a way to welcome new guests to a great coffee."
