- "Where else are you going to buy a six-pack of condoms and cigarettes when you're high at three in the morning?"

24/7 (also written as 24-7, 247 and formerly 24-Seven) is a chain of convenience stores in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Grand Theft Auto V, based on the 7-Eleven stores. The business may also have a store in Little Havana, Vice City in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (a sign reading "24 (Squirt) 7" can be found hung alongside signs reading "Callegi Delicatessen Restaurant").
GTA San Andreas
24/7 stores are well spread all over San Andreas. While nearly all 24/7 outlets tend to bear distinctive exteriors, even disguising themselves under another name (i.e. Roboi's Food Mart and the 69¢ Store), all 24/7 branches tend to share similar interiors, which feature a combination of store shelves that cycle with each visit; despite being common and featuring interiors, the stores have very limited interactivity as players can only purchase food or drinks from vending machines as well as being able to play arcade cabinet-based video games. Unlike many fast-food outlets in the game, 24/7 stores are not marked on the game's map or radar.
Other than providing the ability to purchase food from vending machines, the 24/7 stores serve no storyline related or 100% completion purpose 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 shops may have the same owner).
24/7 stores are also featured in GTA IV and GTA Chinatown Wars, but are not available for interaction. However, billboards advertising the store and it's products can be seen, and the logo appears on some Steed (GTA IV) and Yankee (GTA Chinatown Wars) trucks.
The brand reappears in Grand Theft Auto V, often near gas stations. However, not all 24/7 stores can be entered. The player can buy three types of confectionery: (Ego Chaser, P's & Q's and Meteorite) to restore the player's health at the shop counter, or use the ECola and Sprunk machines located next to the counter. The player is able to shoplift their product of choice, resulting in a one-star wanted level.
Some 24/7s can also be robbed for money. The player has to threaten the shopkeeper by pointing a weapon at him. The player can intimidate the shopkeeper by aiming a gun at his head, forcing him to empty the till faster by shooting at the products behind the counter.
After the shopkeeper hands over the money and player keeps his weapon pointed at him, he will ask what the player wants and will say that there is no money left. But if the player shoots at the second till until the drawer opens, a second bag containing more money appears. Most of the time, the bag with the money falls behind the counter and the player has to climb over the counter in order to pick it up. If the player robs the store, it results in a one-star wanted level. If the player decides to shoot the shopkeeper, it may result in a two-star wanted level.
When the player shoplifts, robs the store and shoots at the second till in one take, the police will most of the time already have arrived at the scene before the player leaves the premises. A decent getaway car is therefore highly recommended, especially if the player decides to shoot at the police which results in a three-star wanted level.
Should the shopkeeper be killed before giving the player the money as some will refuse to hand over the money and sometimes, after being robbed several times, will even pull a gun out- leaving the player no choice but to shoot the shopkeeper. Then the player can rob the till themselves by pressing right on the D-pad and shoot at the second till for some extra takings. If the player visits the same 24/7 branch they just robbed earlier, the shopkeeper (if spared during the first robbery) will recognise them and flee the premises. The player will get a one-star wanted level but is still able to steal the money from the tills.
If by any chance, the player enters any convenience store and there's no clerk, the player can shoot both tills, take the money and won't get any wanted level.
GTA San Andreas
In GTA San Andreas, 24/7 stores use a total of three different interiors internally named "
X711S3" and "
X7_11B, which are used for all but one 24/7 store, occupy a smaller area and features the aforementioned vending machines and arcade games. However,
X711S3, which is linked to the west Mulholland, Los Santos outlet, features a moderately deep interior but has no vending machine or arcade cabinet, rendering that outlet useless in gameplay.
There are additionally three unused 24/7 interiors, "
X7_11C" and "
X7_11D", that are only accessible via in the interior realm.
X7_11C is designed as a moderately large interior;
X7_11D are the two largest 24/7 interiors, with
X7_11D bearing a unique L-shaped floorplan.
The interiors tend to feature a clerk manning the stores' counter, while two to four pedestrians (or customers) are usually found roaming the aisles, uttering unique shopping-related lines, as well as performing animated sequences where they retrieve items from store shelves and interacting with the player only if provoked. Customers may also interact with the store clerk in a short animation, but the customers never leave the store. The store shelves are also fairly detailed, featuring various branded products like Love Juice, Cherry Popper ice-cream or pizzas from Vice City.

- The 24-7 logo in GTA San Andreas 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; the real 7-Eleven logo also has a slightly darker shade of green in the background. Textures name for 24-7 outlets in GTA San Andreas also incorporate "7_11" or "711", lending additional proof that the chain is based on 7-Eleven. These design traits were partially abandoned from GTA IV onwards, featuring a more unique retro-like design, as well as the addition of the color yellow into the logo.
- 24/7 also appears in its GTA Vice City form in Manhunt, another video game developed by Rockstar North.
- In the game Gunpoint, in the background there are several 24/7 stores.
- In the racing game Need for Speed Most Wanted (2012), there were several minimarkets with the same name found in Fairhaven City, although the logo is more similar to 7-Eleven.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
- The stated ingredients on the store's own budget "Savings" range is just random gibberish, which could be lampooning how supermarkets cut corners and put less care into their budget range.
- Originally it was possible to rob the 24/7 stores, but this feature was removed in the final version of the game.
- San Fierro is the only city in San Andreas that does not have any 24/7s.
Grand Theft Auto 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. This store is located on the corner of Wenrohronon Avenue, Cassidy Street and Cayuga Avenue, Schottler, Broker.
- They are one of the official sponsors of the CNT program I'm Rich.
Grand Theft Auto V
- In GTA Online, while holding up a 24/7, if a player pulls the trigger & their weapon has no ammo, the clerk may notice. There's a chance he will stop emptying the register, pull out a firearm from behind the counter and shoot at the player.
- In GTA Online, there's a chance that an armed NPC may sometimes be just outside the stores and will engage players during the robbery. They are most likely an off-duty police officer, as they can be heard saying "there goes my vacation".[ ]
- When robbing a 24/7 in GTA Online, the player may speak into their mic, making the clerk move faster when putting money in a bag. The player can yell threats or simply blabber noises. Either way, the clerk will be intimidated.
- Outside the 24/7 in Sandy Shores, between one and three cats will always spawn in single-player mode (enhanced version only).
- In GTA V and GTA Online the player can shoot the products behind the clerk, these will be alcohol bottles or cigarettes which, will intimidate him and make him put the money in the bag faster.
- In GTA V, some of the 24/7 shopkeepers may use Ferdinand Kerimov's head model.
- Many times when the player enters the store, the clerk says things like "We have cameras so you know" or "I'll be watching you", specifically a Chinese clerk.
- If the player is attacked by an NPC, they will immediately be told to leave the store and will receive a wanted level. It is unknown if this is a bug or not. This was observed in GTA Online, but may occur in GTA V.
