Did your town get a Kwik E Mart?

The convenience store across the street was converted into a Kwik E Mart to celebrate the opening of the Simpson Movie. They painted the exterior of the building, had life sized cut outs of the characters, sold Squishee's and Homer's favorite pink frosted donuts. It was cute but not all that impressive (although they have done a LOT more business.) I was more impressed several years ago when a local home builder built a replica of the Simpson house. Everything was as close to the show as possible including Marge's kitchen curtains with corn cobs and a pink car in the driveway. It was a lot of fun to tour and the house was given away in a raffle. Have you had any real life Simpson experiences?

No I dont think that our town ever got a quicki mart and that sucks because that would of been awsome to see one in my city I would of deffintley taken a picture of it lol. But it is kind of funny to think that the 7-11 stores across the country decided to change thrre name to kwiki mart. I wounder if that cost them a lot of money to do but Im betting the simpsons creators had to of pay them some amount if not all the amount to change there names to promote there film.
