A bit of shopping at the Simpsons’ Kwik-E-Mart, it’s possible!
« Marge, I’m going to get some beer at Apu’s ».** From now on you’ll also be able say this sentence. A Kwik-E-Mart has opened up on Myrtle Beach in South Carolina.
Duff beer, Squishees, Simpson paraphernalia, that’s what you’ll uncover in this store opened up in the Broadway at the Beach mall/amusement park. The series mythical establishment is now a reality and no less extraordinary with a true-to-life Apu as the temple guardian.
7-Eleven had already renamed eleven of their stores in 2007 to promote the film, as the fictional store chain was inspired from it, as well as from Circle K. You could already get some Buzz Cola or even Krusty-O cereal at that time. Now the store will be open all year in this complex which already includes a Crocs store, a Flaming Joe’s and even a Toys & Co.
Until we see a bunch of these high-priced corner stores popping up all over the US, this one is a good reason to visit Myrtle Beach in South Carolina.
