A Real-Life ‘Kwik-E-Mart’ Just Opened In Myrtle Beach! [Video]


Kwik-E-Mart, the fictional convenience store made epochal by The Simpsons, is now a tangible attraction in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

That’s right Simpsons fans — Myrtle Beach is now home to the world’s very first perpetual Kwik-E-Mart store.

The bonafide Kwik-E-Mart is located at Broadway at the Beach, a shopping center beachside that offers a plethora of tourist activities. The new shop is stocked with lots of the goods featured in the show, including Duff Beer, Buzz Cola, Squishiees in a variety of flavors, Lard Lad Donuts, Heat-Lamp Hot Dogs, and Flaming Moe’s energy drinks.

The convenience store in South Carolina is not the first time a Kwik-E-Mart has erected in the real world.

In 2007 in promotion of The Simpsons Movie, a few 7-Eleven stores were momentarily rebranded as Kwik-E-Marts. And Universal Studios Orlando’s Springfield, USA boasts a Kwik-E-Mart of its own, located on the same street as Moe’s Tavern and Krusty Burger.

Another Springfield institution is next to the Kwik-E-Mart—the Aztec Theater, which is primed to welcome its first consumers later this year. When it opens, the cinema will exhibit a Simpsons 4D movie experience and release guests out into the Kwik-E-Mart after each screening.

The Kwik-E-Mart too has non-Simpsons related snacks as well, for your knowledge.

The Simpsons is the longest-running American sitcom in television history.

In 2009, the cartoon surpassed Gunsmoke as the longest-running American scripted prime-time TV series in terms of episodes in 2018 and in terms of seasons.

The Simpsons debuted on December 17, 1989.
