The Simpsons 7-Eleven Kwik-E-Mart in Chicago, Illinois.

Mmm, sacrilicious (The Simpsons 7-Eleven Kwik-E-Mart)

You see, whether igloo hut, or lean-to, or a geodesic dome,There’s no structure I have been to, which I’d rather call my home. When I first arrived, you were all such jerks,But now I’ve come to looooooove your quirks. Maggie with her eyes so bright, Marge with hair by Frank Lloyd Wright,Lisa can philosophise, Bart’s adept at spinning lies, Homer’s a delightful fella, sorry ’bout the salmonella. (Heh heh, that’s OK.) Who needs the Kwik-E-Mart? Now here comes the tricky part. Oh, won’t you rhyme with me? Who needs the Kwik-E-Mart? Their floors are stick-E-Mart, They made Dad sick-E-Mart, Let’s hurl a brick-E-Mart, The Kwik-E-Mart is real… D’oh! Who needs the Kwik-E-Mart?

Not meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…

Forget the Kwik-E-Mart, Goodbye to Kwik-E-Mart, Who needs the Kwik-E-mart? Not me.

Who needs the Kwik-E-Mart?



It’s good to know that the little stupid things in life can still get you as giddy and excited as a child on her way to Disneyland. And when you’re shaking and smiling and laughing the whole seven miles to a 7-Eleven turned Kwik-E-Mart, you know that that feeling still exists.

To tie in with the upcoming Simpsons movie twelve 7-Elevens in the U.S. and Canadia have been turned into Kwik-E-Marts!!!

Luckily, one of the twelve 7-Eleven Kwik-E-Marts was in Chicago and was actually pretty close to my house. So, of course, Nad and I headed on over!


Me, Nadia, and Comic Book Guy at the Simpsons 7-Eleven Kwik-E-Mart in Chicago, Illinois.


I have never before waited (and never thought I would wait) for twenty minutes in a line to get into a convenience store, but it was so damn worth it! Not only was the exterior made over to look just like a Kwik-E-Mart, but they had special Simpsons goods (like Buzz cola) and inside was peppered with different signs and cutouts everyone’s favorite characters. My favorite was the window cling on the frozen foods door that showed Jasper locked inside as the frozen man. Awesome!

Nad and I got some Squishees (AKA Slurpees) and Buzz Cola and pink donuts (mmmm…donuts). Unfortunately, the were out of Krusty O’s 🙁

The Simpsons 7-Eleven Kwik-E-Mart was totally awesome! How many times do you get to go to a local haunt of one of your fav fictional families???

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
