Friday Finds – The Simpsons “Kwik-E-Mart”

The Simpsons have come to real life! Welcome to the first ever created “Kwik-E-Mart,” a popular and new convenience store seen on The Simpsons show to hit the Grand Strand last August.

Located right at Myrtle Beach’s popular tourist attraction, Broadway at the Beach, Kwik-E-Mart has attracted Simpson fans from all around the country wanting a taste of the famous Lard Lad Donuts and Heat-Lamp Hot Dogs.

This is the first ever Kwik-E-Mart to open! The popular convenience store has hinted that this is the first of many to open around the United States in the coming years.

After opening last August, Kwik-E-Mart has become an iconic place for every Simpson fan wanting to slurp the famous Squishee Slushies and purchase Simpson memorabilia. There is also many delicious Simpson inspired treats and unique sitcom souvenirs all around the Kwik-E-Mart too. What more could you ask for on your next Myrtle Beach vacation?

There is also The Aztec Theatre, a unique 4-D Simpsons movie experience that is set to open in the next few months. The theatre is conveniently located next door to the Kwik-E-Mart-perfect to gather up some snacks before entering!
