So, all 7-Eleven stores in Denmark are now in a 'closed' state,' but the content has been deleted by the poster, and the poster's account has also been deleted.

Seven-Eleven has 176 stores in Denmark, many of which are located in major cities, train stations and airports and also issue tickets. However, according to the Danish National Railways, 90% of users use the official website, apps, and ticket vending machines at stations, so the impact of not being able to issue tickets at Seven-Eleven is small.

Details of what kind of attack it was and the outlook for business resumption are unknown at the time of writing the article.
