The new prototype 7-Eleven under construction at Lukens Lane and Richmond Highway is tentatively scheduled to open to the public in the first quarter of 2023, according to an email from a company spokesperson.

The new prototype 7-Eleven at Lukens Lane and Richmond Highway will be under construction for several more months.

Once complete, the new location — redeveloped from a now demolished 7-Eleven on an adjacent lot — will feature a larger and more modern store with six pumping stations (12 total pumps). According to the special exception approved by Fairfax County in July 2019, the store is expected to have many environmentally friendly elements, including energy-efficient systems, exterior panels partially constructed from recycled materials, native plant landscaping and bike racks. The service station is slated to have at least one electric vehicle charging station. Utilities will be undergrounded, and store management will be required to remove litter from the site on a daily basis.

Besides continuing construction on that site at 8629 Richmond Highway, 7-Eleven aims to open new stores at 5500 Franconia Road in Alexandria and 2990 Dale Boulevard in Woodbridge by the end of the year. On Aug. 18, the former Parkway Express convenience store at 8105 Loisdale Road in Newington — right off the Fairfax County Parkway — officially converted into a 7-Eleven.

The convenience store at the corner of Route 286 and Loisdale Road recently converted into a 7-Eleven.

7-Eleven's spokeperson did not respond to a question from On the MoVe about the reason behind the spring 2022 closure of the 7-Eleven located at 8010 Richmond Highway.
