Kwik-E-Marts in Richmond?

Are Kwik-E-Marts coming to Richmond?  Probably not, but I thought the article was interesting.

 But at a company event yesterday in Richmond, officials showcased their planned promotional ef- forts with major upcoming films, including “The Simpsons Movie.”

If all goes as planned, the convenience store chain plans to refit 11 stores across the U.S. — Richmond is an unlikely choice — to resemble the front of the Kwik-E-Mart, the convenience store that Homer and other characters frequent in the classic cartoon TV series.

Customers also will be able to buy products inspired by the nearly two-decades-old show, including KrustyO’s cereal, Buzz Cola and iced Squishees (the cup says Squishee, but the contents will be Slurpee).

I never watched the simpsons, but I saw this linked off another blog that thought it neat that they would announce it in Richmond.
