A Real-Life Kwik-E-Mart Has Opened (And It's Here To Stay)!
Fans of The Simpsons, rejoice!
The Kwik-E-Mart, the show's iconic convenience store, has just opened in real-life and it's got everything you're looking for. From Lard Lad Donuts to Heat Lamp Hot Dogs, Duff Beer, and even the good ol' Squishee drink, the store is now a permanent fixture in the popular tourist town of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
The store is also next door to a 'Simpsons'-themed cinema called the 'Aztec Theatre' just like in the show, which is expected to open later this year and offer a '4D Simpsons movie experience'.
But, what's it really like? Thanks to social media, we've got all the goss (and exclusive pics). Wait until you see the attention to detail!
Mark Cornell, the senior vice president of attractions development at simEx-Iwerks Entertainment, the company behind the store, said this was a world-first. “This is the first, world’s first authentic Kwik-E-Mart,” he told WMBF news. “Every inch of this store is themed, including bringing products to life."
Well, we know where our next holiday is going to be!
