Philadelphia is Wawa’s home turf. We’re proud of that. Wawa’s lemonade-and-iced tea? A caloric bit of heaven. Their hoagies? A guilty 3am just-got-home-from-the-bar pleasure. So we’re aware that 7-Eleven runs a distant second in the Delaware Valley convenience store stakes.
Still, it is damn cool to find out that 7-11 is converting 11 stores around the country into Kwik-E-Marts as part of a promotional campaign for “The Simpsons Movie.”
How Kwik-E-Mart will the Kwik-E-Marts be? Pretty Apu-riffic, actually. Their exteriors will be done to replicate the Kwik-E-Mart and 7-Eleven will have special items like Krusty-O’s, Buzz Cola and iced Squishies for sale. No word yet on whether any will open in the Philly area.
Real Kwik-E-Marts? Woo-Hoo! [Richmond Times-Dispatch]
