Mattituck 7-Eleven celebrates its grand opening

TIM KELLY PHOTO | Three generations of the Cocheo family celebrate the opening of the new Mattituck 7-Eleven on Saturday.

The store has been open for some weeks now, but on Saturday the new Mattituck 7-Eleven story celebrated its grand opening with music, free food, give-aways, facepainting and the balloon animal talents of Paddy the clown.

The store is owned and operated by the Cocheo family of East Marion, which has operated the Southold 7-Eleven for 10 years.
