A new 7-Eleven that started taking shape last summer at the corner of Terry Road and Route 347 in Nesconset, on the opposite side of the road of Walgreens, which was was initially not well received by Patch readers.
"Totally unnecessary. There are two 7-Eleven stores just down the road from that intersection on Smithtown Blvd. Maybe that corner should have been used for Sonic instead," wrote reader Nesconset resident back in July 2012.

While the location has been open since the winter, opinion is more of a 50-50 split to those in favor of the location and those opposed.
"I live around the block, it seems to be alright. I come here every morning," said St. James resident Joe Monzolino, who was shopping at the location Tuesday morning.
Also shopping at the location was Greg Saladino of Nesconset, who views the location in a less than favorable light. While convenient he said it is a specific product that led him to the store Tuesday morning.
"The only reason I'm coming here is because they have the new soda fountain with cherry and vanilla, otherwise I'd be going to the other guys," he said.
Now that the location has been around for some time, what are your thoughts on having a 7-Eleven there? Is it convenient? Do you shop there? Has your mind changed in either direction since it opened?
