When one thinks local business, 7-Eleven doesn’t readily come to mind. This week, on this episode of East Lansing Insider, brought to you by ELi in partnership with Impact 89FM, Andrew hopes to change that thinking with an interview with Ali Haider, who has owned and operated the downtown 7-Eleven for more than five years. Haider, who lives in Okemos, talks about the challenges of Covid and students being gone, the growth of downtown EL, and his dislike of how the Albert EL Fresco was executed. Listen in at this link or the player below!
Correction: The original post said that Haider resides in Grand Rapids. He lives in Okemos, and owns a store near Grand Rapids.
