7-Elevens Become Simpsons ‘Kwik-E-Marts’

Over the weekend, 7-Eleven Inc. turned a dozen stores into
Kwik-E-Marts, the fictional convenience stores of “The
Simpsons
” fame, in the latest example of marketers making life imitate
art.

Those stores and most of the 6,000-plus other 7-Elevens in North America will
sell items that until now existed only on television: Buzz Cola, KrustyO’s
cereal and Squishees, the slushy drink knockoff of Slurpees….

The U.S. locations where a 7-Eleven store was transformed into a Kwik-E-Mart
are New York City; Chicago; Dallas; Denver; Burbank, Calif.; Los Angeles;
Henderson, Nev.; Orlando, Fla.; Mountain View, Calif.; Seattle; and Bladensburg,
Md.

I want my squishee with ALL syrup!
