If you’ve ever craved a Squishee, a Lard Lad Donut, or a heat lamp hotdog, look no further than Myrtle Beach, SC.
The first fully-functional “Kwik-E-Mart,” the convenience store chain featured in The Simpsons, opened Friday in Myrtle Beach’s “Broadway at the Beach” outdoor entertainment center. The store offers many of the foods featured in the show, as well as memorabilia featuring Homer, Marge, Bart, Maggie, and other characters from the iconic cartoon.
Over the weekend, visiting fans shared their first Kwik-E-Mart experience on social media.

As if the Kwik-E-Mart wasn’t enough of a draw for The Simpsons fans, the Aztec Theater is set to open next door before the end of the year. The theater, another Springfield favorite come-to-life, will expand on the theme and offer a Simpsons 4-D movie.
