The Kwik E Mart
Well, you can tell these are old photos just by the gas prices. These photos were taken last summer at a 7-Eleven that had been rebranded to be a Kwik E Mart as part of the marketing ploy before the Simpsons Movie.
Here is the gas pump area, with the re-branded canopy. Close up below.
Below is the funny sign asking you to please come again to loiter - it's a little blurry, but also shows the storefront.
Also on the outside - an ad for the National Bank of Springfield and two of Springfield's residents. Ok, well the one on the left is my husband.
Inside the store were all sorts of ads for Krusty-O's, Squishees, the pink donuts Homer eats, etc.
And, then, they sold that stuff too!
The re-branding didn't last that long, but it was a cool gimmick. So, we had to go check it out. I'm sure the stuff they sold is being collected by someone somewhere already. Funny.
