The Simpsons Movie is finally letting the family make their way to the big screen in July 27, and we all knew they wouldn’t be satisfied with simple trailers and posters to advertise the film’s release.

7-11 Inc. is trying to put in place a deal that would transform eleven of its stores across the United States into real “Kwik-E-Marts” just like in the show. In the show, almost everyone in Springfield as stopped at the Kwik-E-Mart at one time or another and bought something from it’s wonderful owner Apu.

Not only would the stores be made to look like the Kwik-E-Mart, but they would also sell products inspired from the show as well. Storve shelves would now be lined with KrustyO’s cereal and Buzz Cola while Squishees could be gotten right at the Slurpee machine. The faces and famous sayings of the characters from the show would also be appearing on some of 7-11’s food merchandise.

7-11 is also in talks for promotions dealing with the release of Spider-Man 3 and Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer.
