It appears as though the world’s largest convenience store will get Simpsonized, though 7-Eleven Inc. said the deal isn’t done yet.

But at a company event yesterday in Richmond, officials showcased their planned promotional efforts with major upcoming films, including “The Simpsons Movie.”

If all goes as planned, the convenience store chain plans to refit 11 stores across the U.S. – Richmond is an unlikely choice – to resemble the front of the Kwik-E-Mart, the convenience store that Homer and other characters frequent in the classic cartoon TV series.

Thats pretty cool but I havent seen a 7-11 around Houston before.

Bad move. If you’re going to have a real life Kwik-E-Mart, you have to hire only Indian employees – which they won’t do, because that’s illegal, as well as the kind of thing that starts pointless shitstorms. This will never work.

Maybe that’s how they’re picking the 11 stores they’re going to use.

So how many cities of Springfield are there across the country?
