LEGO’s 71016 The Kwik-E-Mart has been marked as Retiring Soon by LEGO Shop at Home Europe. This is a good indicator that LEGO will be retiring this set worldwide soon. This shouldn’t be a big surprise, as The Kwik-E-Mart has released since May 2015.
Is this set worth it?
The Simpsons TV show may be deteriorating quality in the recent seasons. However, The Simpsons is considered excellent in its early years and created a lot of lifelong fans. Also, this set has a lot of exclusive minifigures that make this set more valuable. This set is definitely worth owning based on the quality of the minifigures and strength of the license.
[UPDATE ― 2/10/2017] As some of the readers point out, The Simpsons House was already retired in Europe. This post is updated accordingly.
