If you find yourself craving Squishees, Buzz Cola, Lard Lad Donut or Hot-Lamp Hot Dog, then we’d suggest heading down to the first ever IRL Kwik-E-Mart. Situated in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the shop has been recreated from the popular “The Simpsons” franchise – and it’s every fans dream.
Open for business beginning this Friday, the convenience store – owned by the character Apu Nahasapeemapetilon in the cartoon – will sell the shows iconic Duff Beer, Flaming Moe energy drinks and a whole range of Simpsons memorabilia.
“Broadway at the Beach is like no other location. It really draws a lot of foot traffic, walking around, and I think it’s the perfect sort of first place,” said Mark Cornell, senior VP of attractions development at SimEx-Iwerks Entertainment, which is behind the project in partnership with FoxNext Destinations and Gracie Films. “I think the Simpsons would come to Myrtle Beach for a vacation.”
The Aztec Theatre another iconic landmark from the show, will also be recreated later this year, with the Kwik-E-Mart serving as an exit for the 4D experience.
