Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart!

07.20.2007

To promote the upcoming SIMPSONS movie next week, the convenience store chain 7 ELEVEN has turned eleven of their stores in The States (including one in Vancouver, BC) into full on KWIK-E-MARTS. The lucky 7 ELEVEN stores were outfitted with a "KWIK-E-MART" facade and included SQUISHEE and BUZZ COLA machines, the classic pink sprinkled doughnuts and of course, KRUSTY O'S. Unfortunately for me, there was no DUFF beer and all of the canned BUZZ COLA and boxes of KRUSTY O'S were sold out in its first week. D'oh, indeed. I took some pics and a little video tour of the joint to give you an idea of what it looks like. For me, it still looked very much like your average, run of the mill 7 ELEVEN but all in all, it was a cool little pilgrimage to take. Below you'll also find a list of the other KWIK-E-MART locations. Enjoy.

Extra Tidbit: Thanks to my friend 'Kirsten' for some additional picage and buying all of the BUZZ COLA cans before I could get there. Grrr. Stay gold, Pony Boy.

Great report!

I was hoping someone would snatch a few pictures of one of the eleven Quick-E Marts around the country, well done!

woohoo!

cool!it's great marketing, i agree.
but i can't believe they put the one in FL in Lk. Buena Vista?! That's by the dang mouse! They should have put one on I-Drive by Universal. It would make better marketing sense because we are to have a Simpons ride at Universal Studios next year. It would have been a great way to promote that too. imo

That is the best marketing for a film that I have ever seen. Fox is Hardcore. I wish they would have come to Philly, I definitely would have went with my camera.

Son of a b*tch!

As much as I love the Simpsons, they chose not to come to Jersey and do this with the Jersey 7-11's?!

Rusty's not happy.

"Why not go to NY and check them out, Rusty?"

Don't have the time, can't cross the bridge as easily as everyone else.

Maybe they'll do it again for the sequel....maybe?

Kwik-E-Mart Madness

For some strange reason, the layout, look and overall feel of THAT Kwik-E-Mart is exactly like the Kwik-E-Mart in Seattle. The new blue squishee is pretty good. Buzz Cola is like Jolt Cola, except I think Buzz has about a pound more sugar in it. And I'm pretty sure Apu was working when I was there... kick ass. Only complaint? Where's the Duff Beer, yo???
