7-Eleven acquired the Sunoco convenience stores inside the PA Turnpike service plazas in early 2018.  A rebrand will also be taking place in the coming months, changing all signage to reflect 7-Eleven as the new convenience store. 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all service plazas will have limited staffing for the safety of the employees of HMS Host and 7-Eleven, which operate the PA Turnpike service plazas. Fuel and all convenience stores inside the service plazas will continue to remain open 24 hours a day.  Motorists using the Pennsylvania Turnpike service plazas should keep in mind that no inside dining or seating is available, patrons should not congregate, and everyone is encouraged to maintain a 6-foot distance.
