"Oh, thank Heaven for Carlie's Convenience."

It doesn't quite have the same ring to it as "oh, thank Heaven for 7 Eleven."

No matter. Downtown Colorado Springs' busy 7 Eleven convenience store, at Pikes Peak Avenue and Tejon Street, is set to close April 26, according to signs posted in its windows. Carlie's Convenience, another store, will replace it, the signs say.

Russ Mallery, the downtown 7 Eleven's franchisee, declined to comment Tuesday about the upcoming change. It's unknown when Carlie's Convenience will open and whether Mallery will continue to be the owner.

A limited liability company under Mallery's name owns the site of another Carlie's Convenience at 1580 Meadowbrook Parkway, north of U.S. 24 and Marksheffel Road in unincorporated El Paso County, according to county land records.

The downtown 7 Eleven opened in December 2010 on the northeast corner of Pikes Peak and Tejon. Without a grocery or pharmacy in downtown, the 7 Eleven has provided a place for area employees and visitors to grab coffee, food, newspapers and other items.
