The Kwik-E-Mart is a fictional convenience store in the animated television series The Simpsons. It is a parody of American convenience stores, such as 7-Eleven and Circle K, and depicts many of the stereotypes about them. It is notorious for its high prices and the poor quality of its merchandise. The operator of the Springfield store is an Indian-American named Apu Nahasapeemapetilon. It was first seen in the episode "The Telltale Head" and has since become a common setting in The Simpsons.
In July 2007, eleven 7-Eleven locations in the United States and one in Canada were transformed into Kwik-E-Marts as part of a special promotion for The Simpsons Movie.
The Kwik-E-Mart has also been known to sell faulty, dirty and expired merchandise, though legal to sell items that have been damaged or close to expiration, it is illegal to sell it if it has already expired, especially if you don't tell the customer it is as such, like Apu. It is also so notorious for its daily robberies by Snake Jailbird, and it constantly falls victim to shoplifting by Jimbo, Dolph, and Kearney.
This store is located at Universal Studios in Hollywood.
