West Vail 7-11 store closing

VAIL — The post-last-call microwave burrito is no more in West Vail, as the 7-11 store, which has been in that location for decades, is closing today.
Company spokeswoman Margaret Chabris cited “exorbitant” lease renewal costs as the reason the store is leaving town.
With 7-11 gone, the town is out of late-night places to buy cough syrup or a loaf of bread. Vail’s supermarkets close at 11 p.m., which leaves the closest place with 24-hour service in Avon, where the Walmart and, yes, 7-11 stores are open 24 hours a day.
