BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — Slurpee junkies have a new venue to get their Big Gulp fix as another 7-Eleven opened this month in Bed-Stuy — the neighborhood's second.

The new location, at 1239 Fulton St., opened June 6, according to staff.

The store replaced part of S&A Superstore, a shop whose stock included electronics and kitchenware alongside clothing and shoes and which closed in late September.

Now customers can revel in Big Gulps, taquitos, hot dogs, beef patties, chicken dippers and mini empanada bites.

Bed-Stuy's first 7-Eleven hit in 2009 at Brooklyn and Atlantic avenues.

Construction on the new storefront began earlier this year, as Brokelyn first reported.

Right now, 7-Eleven is using about half of the space previously taken up by S&A, with the store's other half still abandoned. A two-story, 22,000-square-foot Planet Fitness is set to open next door in 2015.

Other openings and closings in Bed-Stuy:

Australian-style cafe Brunswick opened at 144 Decatur St. late last month featuring coffee from Counter Culture and a menu of breakfast dishes, sandwiches and salads, as Brownstoner first reported.

The shop is owned by Alexander Hall, who also owns Milk Bar in Prospect Heights and Sunshine Co. in neighboring Crown Heights. Hall is also getting ready to open another Brunswick on Prospect Park West.

But as one Bed-Stuy cafe opens, another prepares to close— temporarily, anyway.

PS Design Cafe, at 10 Kingston Ave., will close its doors in August to find a new location, its owner said.

The cafe, owned by local artist Pablo Sue-Pat, regularly lined its walls with artwork and featured coffee and pastries.

Sue-Pat confirmed that he gave three month's notice to the building's landlord in order to focus on an upcoming exhibit at his 2ACGALLERY and to find a new, larger location in the neighborhood for the cafe.

And Charlie's, a new deli and grocery at 1492 Fulton St., also doubles as a doughnut shop.

The shop opened earlier this month and features sprinkled, frosted and jelly-filled doughnuts from the Donut Connection chain alongside its salad and cold cut stations.
