Colt Gun Salesman: "Uh, just tell me one thing. Where'd you learn to shoot like that?"
Marty: "7-Eleven."
— At the Town Festival

7-Eleven (pronounced seven-eleven) was a convenience store chain that existed in 1985.


Marty McFly frequently visited a 7-Eleven to play a Wild Gunman arcade game, which gave him the skill to shoot a real gun.

Back in 1885, when Marty was asked by Colt Peacemaker gun salesman Elmer H. Johnson how he learned to shoot a gun as well as he had just demonstrated on the shooting gallery, Marty cryptically replied "7-Eleven".

In 1984, Marty McFly played Wild Gunman at 7-Eleven. He met Jennifer Parker there, and was going to ask her on a date, but was interrupted by Douglas J. Needles, who mocked Marty because he didn't have a car, which embarrassed him as he was afraid that Jennifer would reject him for someone who had their own vehicle. After deciding against stealing Dr. Emmett Brown's DeLorean DMC-12 to try to impress Jennifer, Marty took Doc's advice and asked Jennifer out. They then went on a date to a movie theater to see a Clint Eastwood movie.

In 2015, there was a 7-Eleven store in Hill Valley located where the Texaco service station used to be in 1985. A new automated gas and oil service station for flying cars had been built on top of the store.
