7-11 To Become Kwik-E-Mart
Posted by Molli Fire on Thursday, 29March07
that’s right! to promote the Simpsons Movie coming out this summer, a slew of 7-11 convenience stores in the US will be transformed to look like the fictitous Kwik-E-Mart. it has not been announced yet which cities will get the Springfield staple, nor whether Duff Beer will be available.
chances are, you will not find Apu Nahasapeemapetilon behind the counter, nor his altar to Ganesha. how about Squishees and Buzz Cola, you ask? YES, both will be sold at the Kwik-E-Marts! tofu dogs and paradise behind the non-alcoholic beer? ummm, no.
will owners of the chain of “real” Kwik-E-Mart stores in Minnesota and Pittsburgh take issue with the conversions, or reap the free publicity? only time will tell….
actually, i can’t wait to see what other transformations occur in preparation for this movie! the movie will hit theatres in the US on july 27th, 2007.
