Guess who is bringing more innovation to San Diego? If you said 7-Eleven, you deserve a free Slurpee.

The location at a 3504 El Cajon Blvd. will be opening as an Evolution Store in the coming months.

Realizing retail cannot rest on its laurels; Evolution Stores will be testing a variety of products and services for their compatibility with the 7-Eleven clientele. The company calls them “real-time experiential testing grounds” that are customized to the neighborhoods they serve. The stores will feature Laredo Taco Co. eatery, mobile check out, delivery and much more.

Sempra Energy announced full-year 2019 earnings were $1.9 billion, or $6.78 per diluted share, compared with $1.5 billion, or $5.57 per diluted share, in 2018.

“…Our earnings results are a direct reflection of our sharper strategic focus and ongoing execution of our mission to be North America’s premier energy infrastructure company,” said Jeffrey Martin, chairman and CEO of Sempra Energy.

I remember as a child my family had a moving sale which included our complete set of Dr. Seuss books which had helped two boys and their sister learn to read. An older gentleman inquired about the price. Mom told him that she preferred to sell them to someone with kids, who could also learn the delights of reading with the books. The man admitted to collecting stuff. Mom later gave the books away to a mother and two young daughters.

It takes true preciousness for products to reach that level. Dr. Seuss is that special.
