US neighbourhood supermarket operator 7-Eleven says it will close between 115 and 120 convenience stores. The group announced the move as it reported Q4 results slightly ahead of analysts' forecasts. 7-Eleven reported earnings of US$17.1m (16 cents per share) in the quarter, ahead of US$14.2m (14 cents per share) in the year-ago period. Adjusted for the impact of store closing and a US$5.7m accounting charge, earnings were at 14 cents per share, the company said.
