Rolling Stone“s cover story about the Boston Marathon bomber just got the magazine yanked out of nearly 2,000 7-Eleven stores, and more could follow … our sources has learned.
The omnipresent convenient store is joining the national outrage over the mag”s upcoming issue with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover, and an investigation into his life leading up to the bombing.
A rep for 7-Eleven, Inc. tells our sources it “will not sell the Aug. 1 issue of the Rolling Stone magazine in its company-operated stores.”
There are 1,700 company operated stores — and another 5,900 franchised stores. The rep says they”ll also urge those franchise owners to pull the issue.
Yesterday, CVS, Walgreens, and Stop & Shop all said they will not sell the issue either.
