From Super Regionals to UVa Reunions and recent graduations, Charlottesville continues to take in a business boom.

The past couple of weekends have brought in lots of crowds to the city and also have brought in business.

The 7-Eleven on Ivy Road is among the businesses basking in the boom. It's a convenient stop for folks around the Corner or at Davenport Field for baseball.

Managers said they don't mind the long lines of visitors because they make the job more fun.

"Probably the first 10 people today were strangers to this town," employee Randy Davis said. "It's so much fun to meet people from all over the world, I guess."

He said being so close to the university has helped business but also makes working there more of an experience.
