7-Eleven

I just found out that not every 7-eleven operate twenty four seven. This picture was taken when I was on my way to the office and it was 7.40 am in the morning.

So I decided to do some "research" to fulfill my curiosities and the information I got from the Wikipedia are:

7-Eleven is an international franchisor, licensor, and operator of a chain of convenience stores. The company was founded in 1927 in Oak Cliff, Texas, USA, which is now part of Dallas, Texas, when an employee of Southland Ice Company started selling milk, eggs and bread from an ice dock. The original location was an improvised storefront at Southland Ice Company, an ice-manufacturing plant. Although small grocery stores and general merchandisers were present in the immediate area, the managers of the ice plant discovered that selling "convenience items" such as bread and milk was popular. Eventually, several locations would open up in the Dallas area. Initially, these stores were open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., hours unprecedented in their length, hence the name. The company began to use the 7-Eleven name in 1946.

Malaysian 7-Elevens are owned by Convenience Shopping Sdn. Bhd. (CSSB). Convenience Shopping Sdn Bhd (CCSB) was incorporated on 4 June 1984. CSSB is the pioneer of 24-hour convenience stores in Malaysia via its franchise of 7-Eleven stores in Malaysia.

Insufficient Manpower...I think this might be the reason! And why wasting resources opening 24 hrs per day? =)

I am trusting the same best exertion from you later on also. Truth be told your exploratory writing abilities has motivated me. One more times will go until a clear winner is determined. If you run out of tire, or have a mechanical failure, you forfeit your place.

Unfortunately there are just some all-too-common nutrients that we simply don't get enough of. And they're absolutely critical to optimal health and wellness. Especially as we age.
Here I sifted through the supplements that are available on the market and boiled them down to three that can have the best effect for us.
