Kwik-E-Mart in Coquitlam



Behold the newly opened Kwik-E-Mart in Coquitlam...

(Really a 7-11 marketing the upcoming Simpsons movie)




Damn kids, always loitering!



Those doughnuts don't look to bad, though. Maybe I'll go in.



They are in fact, sprinklicious.



Bonding with other municipal employees.


And now for some truly fine marketing...






Hmm. Those kids have a good idea. Those Squishees look good.



First, I need a cup.



Out of my way, kid.



Empting my wallet on empty calories. The marketing machine won today.



In the course of this adventure I had a CBC news camera stuck in my face. I might be on the 6:00 news.

The non-animated municipal employees have already wiped out the doughnut supply, but that six-pack of Buzz Cola is coming home with me.

That looks like a heap of dorky fun.

And sadly, no 7-11's here. we have these rundown ratrap convenience chain stores called "Needz" but it's more like "Desperationz" if you have to go in there.

This explains the Krusty-O's I saw someone buying at a New West 7-11 a few nights back. Didn't notice any of that other stuff, though. Wouldn't mind picking up a sixer of Buzz myself...

Apparently there are only a very small number of 7-11's that have the whole set-up like this. AFAIK this is the only one in greater Vancouver.

The only mark is a small crown with an ®, I think that means it's Royal Crown Cola (i.e. RC Cola).

Most 7-11's have some or all of the products, even if they aren't all decked out.

PS: Those doughnuts look tasty!
