- "Where else are you going to buy a six-pack of condoms and cigarettes when you're high at three in the morning?"
- ―Slogan in GTA IV
24/7 (also written as 24-7, 247 and formerly 24-Seven and Twenty Four 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 have distinctive exteriors, even disguising themselves under another name (i.e. Roboi's Food Mart, P Hat Liquor 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; originally, it was possible to rob 24/7 stores, but this feature was removed in the final version of the game. Unlike other businesses in the game, 24/7 stores are not marked on the game's map or radar.
The 24-7 logo in GTA San Andreas is similar to 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 also incorporate "7_11" or "711"; The interior logo of 24/7 is different, and is colored yellow and blue, perhaps being a beta design of the logo. These design traits were partially abandoned from GTA IV onward, featuring a unique and more retro-like design, as well as the addition of the color yellow into the logo.
Despite being common and featuring interiors, the stores have limited interactivity; other than providing the ability to purchase food or drinks from vending machines, the 24/7 stores serve no storyline related or 100% completion purpose in GTA San Andreas.
24/7 stores are also featured in GTA IV and GTA Chinatown Wars, but are not available for interaction. Billboards advertising the store and its products can be seen, and the logo appears on some Steed (GTA IV) and Yankee (GTA Chinatown Wars) trucks. In GTA IV, they are one of the official sponsors of the CNT program I'm Rich.
A closed down 24 hour Mini Mart can be found in Schottler named as Twenty Four Seven, featuring the same color scheme as 24/7, with some colored letters missing and one letter turned upside down, making it read "Twat FurS", another example of Rockstar's numerous sexual innuendos.
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.
Robbing a store
In Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, 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. This can also be done by shooting at the products behind the counter, or, in GTA Online, speaking into (or generating other noise toward) the mic. The cash registers can also be shot directly to release the money inside.
If by any chance, the player enters any convenience store and there is no clerk, the player can shoot both tills, take the money and will not get any wanted level.
In Grand Theft Auto Online, snacks, drinks and cigarettes purchased from 24/7s are added to the player's inventory rather than immediately consumed, allowing the player to use them at a later time.
GTA San Andreas
In GTA San Andreas, 24/7 stores use a total of three different interiors internally named "
X711S2" 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,
X711S2, 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.

Grand Theft Auto V
- 24/7 also appears in its GTA Vice City form in Manhunt, another video game developed by Rockstar North.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
- The stated list of 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.
- San Fierro is the only city in San Andreas that does not have any 24/7s.
- Pedestrians can be seen picking products from shelves and apparently storing them in their pockets, indicating they are probably shoplifting.
Grand Theft Auto V
- 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, 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, just 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.
