Who Needs The Kwik-E-Mart?

Yesterday, the Internet was a buzz with the news that 7-11 planed to convert 11 store locations into Kwik-E-Marts, the "convenience" store prominently featured on The Simpsons.

While nothing official has been announced, if this plan goes through the selected locations will have their storefronts refitted to resemble Apu's famous exterior. Inside, the stores, shelves may be stocked with products inspired by the show, including Frosted Krusty O's cereal, Buzz Cola and Squishees.

The proposed tie-in will be part of the promotion behind the much-anticipated "Simpsons Movie," due in theaters July 27.
