Kwik-E-Mart’s opening soon?

March 28, 2007

kwik-e-mart.jpgWell, not quite. But, in lieu of the new Simpsons Movie opening later this year, some 7-11’s could be converting to “Kwik-E-Mart’s” to coincide with the release of the film.

From The Times Dispatch:

“If all goes as planned, the convenience store chain plans to refit 11 stores across the U.S. — Richmond is an unlikely choice — to resemble the front of the Kwik-E-Mart, the convenience store that Homer and other characters frequent in the classic cartoon TV series.

Customers also will be able to buy products inspired by the nearly two-decades-old show, including KrustyO’s cereal, Buzz Cola and iced Squishees (the cup says Squishee, but the contents will be Slurpee).”

That’s actually a pretty cool idea. Too bad they aren’t converting any here in British Columbia.

“The Simpsons Movie” hits theaters July 27, 2007.
