7-11 trash and panhandlers

Forums:

Any suggestions on how to improve the area around the new 7-11? Since 7-11 opened, there has been a big increase in trash and loiterers/panhandlers.

I went in that 7-11 last week to see what it was like.
The only people in there were me, two clerks, and three police officers.

Godwin was basically a Nazi.

I could do with a slurpee. I'll swing by to check it out later.

Door greeters are inevitable. There is a pheromone given off by drug stores, state stores and Wawa that is like sexual dynamite to door greeters.

I like the 7-11. Wawa is nice but you can't get a real slurpee there. Only 7-11 has real slurpees. And big gulps. I like real big gulps.

you cannot occupy it, if you do that there will be BLOOD, AIDS, MRSA, USED SANITARY NAPKINS, and AIRBORNE DISEASES

Sorry, last time I swung past 7-11 it looked clean. And there wasn't a door greeter there. But knowing how 7-11s are in this town, I'm sure that was just a rarity.

I drove by there the other night on my way home from work, looked empty.

How do you get in there? Directly off Girard or off the side street? In the dark it was hard to tell.

There has been a distinct increase in the number of 7/11 Slice-to-Go pizza boxes all over the place since it opened.

I think they were filming for "Pants on the Ground: The Larry Platt Story".

Just to follow up.
Homeless man gone... pants, belt and sweatshirt on sidewalk... in a puddle o' pee.
I think that is in the Urban Dictionary as: definition of Slur-Pee.

In fairness, Girard is all ripped up, so the trash problem might get resolved once the street work is fixed. That whole area is a mess right now. Hopefully, once all the construction is done the litter situation will improve.
