So, I had previously mentioned on my 7-11 post, that a selected number of 7-Elevens were transformed into Kwik-E-Marts, like the ones in the Simpsons.
Well, earlier today, I made a trip to Times Square, in New York City in search of this Kwik-E-Mart.
I was very amused but it didn’t very resemble the Kwik-E-Mart as shown in the cartoon. Sure, there were squishees, pink donuts, Buzz cola, and lots of Simpsons memorabilia, but I guess it was just a little odd to have the Kwik-E-Mart in the middle of the city. I hear that the Kwik-E-Mart in Chicago resembles the one from the cartoon the most (according to the picture from the official 7-Eleven website, there’s even the parking spaces in front of the store).
Buy 3 for the Price of 3! Awesome!
Anyway, I had a lot of fun running around the store with my camera, snapping away! I was very impressed with the decorations inside the store. I liked all the cartoon character cut outs, and the Springfield posters and flyers around the store. And, there were Indian men working at the store dressed with Apu. I thought that was very cute, with the outfits and all.
Oooo!! Look at all those Pink Donuts!!!
Thirst quenching Squishees available in these special Simpsons squishee cups!
I also picked up a couple of Buzz Colas!!!
