Slurpees Spawn: Too Much, Too Soon?

What in the heavens is up with 7-11? Yesterday, two emailers picked up the red phone to alert us that the 7-11 doors have been put on a storefront at 84th and York. Nothing shocking there, except that previous eyewitness statements have fingered a second Manhattan 7-11 at 82rd and Third. Is somebody fibbing, or are both of these locations valid? It would seem unusual that after such a long period of time without any 7-11s, two would suddenly plop down just a cheeseburger stick's throw away from one another. But if that's the case, might we suggest a death match fought in a kiddie pool filled with hot, melted nacho cheese?
