I love it when we have a new opening at the Jersey Shore....especially when it is one of those stores that we cannot live without.

This time....a plan has been approved for a new 7-Eleven convenience store on Route 9 North in Howell. And yes, this would include a new gas station that will come right along with it.

There will also be approximately 25 parking spaces and of course, lighting and landscaping to make it look pretty!

The new 7-Eleven will replace the gas station located at the intersection of Route 9 and Strickland Road.

I know to many of you...this is just another opening to crowd New Jersey but to me, it is another much needed addition.

There are so many stores in the Garden State that I honestly don't know what I would do if they didn't exist....and 7-Eleven is one of them.

Shout out to Patch.com for the information on this new store opening!

So the more the merrier as far as I'm concerned.

What other stores could New Jerseyans not live without, you ask?
