7-Eleven opens gasoline stations in Taiwan

President Chain Store Corp. (PCSC), the operator of the 7-Eleven convenience store chain in Taiwan, opened the first integrated self-service gas station and convenience store in Taoyuan City. The new 7-Eleven gas station reflects the company’s goal of providing customers with a safe and well-lit environment while working to conserve energy and cut carbon emissions, said PCSC President Hsu Chung-jen. The company estimates that the energy saving facilities will help the stations electricity consumption by about 30%. According to Tony Tsai, general manager of the company’s marketing group, the company plans to open a total of 20 stations around Taiwan by 2011. PCSC also plans to open 200 more 7-Eleven convenience stores that will feature the latest environment-friendly facilities in the country. Taiwan currently ranks as 7-Eleven’s third largest market in the world, according to Joseph DePinto, president and chief executive officer of U.S.-based 7-Eleven, Inc. (September 13/23, 2008)
