It has just gotten easier to visit Springfield, Home of the Simpsons. Ever wanted to try a Buzz Cola, Krusty-O's cereal, or a Squishie? Now you can! 7-11 has converted several of its stores into Kwik-E-Marts, the fictional convenience store run by Apu Nahasapeemapetilon..
Unfortunately at 7-eleven.com/ I was unable to find the Canadian Location. Here are the American ones:
|Lake Buena Vista, FL/Orlando, FL|
|Las Vegas, NV/Henderson, NV|
|Los Angeles, CA|
|New York City, NY|
|San Francisco, CA/Mountain View, CA|
|Washington, DC/Bladensburg, MD|
Canadians purchase an average of 30 million drinks per year.
I Live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and we were crowned the Slurpee Capital of the world for the sixth time in a row. In Manitoba, 7-Eleven stores across the province sell an average of 8,330 slurpee drinks per month. The rest of Canada sells an average of 5,990, which makes Manitobans the world leader of Slurpee Sales. I think we deserve a Kwik E Mart here in Winnipeg, after all Homer Simpson was born here! Maybe not, but according to Wikipedia, On May 30, 2003, Homer was made an honorary citizen of Winnipeg, Canada. This was to recognize the fact that Matt Groening's father — Homer Groening — was likely from the Manitoba capital.
If the conversion does not happen here in Winnipeg call your local M.L.A. and demand one. The remaining 7-11 stores will also sell Simpsons items, including the cola, cereal, and frozen treat mentioned above.
They will also sell Pink donuts, but no Duff Beer.
