"The most convenient store in America. Always open. Always over priced."
―GTA San Andreas Website

24/7 (also written as 24-7 and formerly 24-Seven) is a chain of convenience stores based on the 7 Eleven stores. This business appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, GTA San Andreas, GTA IV, GTA Chinatown Wars and Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

In GTA San Andreas, the stores are well spread all over San Andreas, and have almost always a different appearance from the outside, but from inside they are almost all the same, with only minor aesthetic alterations; for example, Bitch'n' Dog Food cans are up for sale in only one store. The player can only buy snacks or drinks at the vending machines. Sometimes, the clerk and a customer interact in a short animation, but the customers never leave the store. You can spot a lot of things in every single store, like Love Juice, Cherry Popper ice-cream or pizzas from Vice City.

There are also several arcade games in every 24/7 which can be played. The pedestrians found inside the stores (two to four usually spawn) will typically make a comment when looking at something on the shelves or random comments about their life while walking around, only interacting with the player if provoked.

Other than providing the ability to purchase food from vending machines, the 24/7 stores serve no storyline-related or 100% completion purchase in GTA: San Andreas, with the exception of the Commerce location Roboi's Food Mart, which is the site of the Roboi's Food Mart Courier Mission and becomes an asset property (although the store carries a different name, the interior of Roboi's is identical to that of a 24/7, indicating the two chains are likely related).

24/7 stores reappear in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and but are no longer accessible. Billboards advertising the store and its products can be seen, and its logo appears on some Steed (GTA IV) and Yankee (GTA Chinatown Wars) trucks.

The stores reappear in Grand Theft Auto V, however, only some 24/7 stores can be entered and used to buy food to restore the player's health. Enterable 24/7s can also be robbed for some money (usually $200 or more, especially if the other till is robbed). However, if the player robs the store, they will end up with a one star as soon as they exit the store, two if the clerk is murdered. Should the clerk be killed before giving the player the money as some will refuse to get the money and some will even get a gun out, then the player can rob the till themselves by pressing right on the D-pad. If you visit the same 24/7 you just robbed later, the store owner (if spared during the first robbery) will recognize you, so it wouldn't be appropriate for the player to visit the same store again, at least for a while.

Trivia

  • The 24/7 logo bears a resemblance to the real life store 7-Eleven's logo. The only differences are the words in the logo, and that the foreground and background words' shades of color are inverted. Also, the real 7-Eleven logo has a slightly darker shade of green in the background.
  • 24/7 also appears in Manhunt, another video game developed by Rockstar Games.
  • In GTA IV, a defunct 24-7 has the name written as Twenty Four Seven, but some letters are missing and one letter is turned upsidedown, making it read "Twat FurS", one example of Rockstar's innumerous sexual innuendos.
  • In GTA San Andreas, instead of putting actual ingredients in the 24/7 "English Breakfast Tea" and "Chocolate Chip Cookies", it is just random gibberish.
  • Originally in San Andreas, you could rob 24/7, but this feature was removed in the final version of the game.
  • According to a recent GI Interview, 24/7s in GTA V appear to be enterable, and a bit run down.
  • San Fierro is the only city in San Andreas that does not have any 24/7s.
