Is Your Local 7-Eleven Now a Kwik-E-Mart?
Did you notice anything different at your local 7-Eleven this weekend? Like perhaps a small Kwik-E-Mart makeover? If so, then your 7-Eleven was one of twelve stores to receive a promotional Simpsons Movie facelift. The facelift included removing the 7-Eleven logo and replacing it with a Kwik-E-Mart one instead. They (and most of the 6,000 North American 7-Elevens) will also offer items previously only seen in the land of Homer and pals, including: Squishees, KrustyOs and Buzz Cola. The craziest part is that unlike most promotional campaigns, this time it's the retailer (7-Eleven), and not the movie studio (Fox) who is picking up the tab - reportedly "somewhere in the single millions." To see if you live near one of the converted stores, check out the Kwik-E-Mart locator.
I personally don't have one that close to me, but I did stop by a 7-Eleven to partake in a Squishee. I opted for a mix of sour watermelon and cherry. What flavor would you have chosen?
