Late night robberies prompt an Alexandria convenience store to adjusts its hours

The 7-Eleven at 1025 W. Glebe Road is no longer open 24 hours a day.

A rash of overnight robberies prompted store management to close the store from 12 to 4 a.m. last month.

This afternoon, in fact, ALXnow observed Alexandria Police investigating the theft of three cases of beer from the store. No one was hurt in the incident and no one was arrested, although store staff say that thefts are becoming commonplace.

“A man and a woman walked in and took three cases,” the employee said. “That’s why we had to adjust our hours.”

The nearest 24-hour 7-Eleven is located at 3412 Mount Vernon Avenue, although the doors are locked after midnight and customers have to knock for entry.

Earlier this summer, two 7-Eleven convenience stores in the city were robbed. Earlier this year, Giant Food also made changes to its operations due to an increase in shoplifting incidents.
