Try-N-Save is a supermarket in downtown Springfield.


The shop sells a variety of products, including stationery, video games, toys, and jewelry, and it has a photo center. They have small kiddie rides outside, a horse and car. The store is protected by Detective Don Brodka. Try-N-Save often has themed sales, such as Christmas or the beginning of school. The store is open 24 hours on Christmas.


Bart attempted to steal the video game Bonestorm from the store, but was ultimately caught by Brodka. Brodka banned Bart from the store, and told him he would be jailed if he ever returned to the store. Unfortunately for Bart, the Simpsons had to take their annual family portrait at the store. He tried to go there disguised, but when Marge insisted that he had to look good and natural in the photo, he had his disguise removed and Brodka saw him. Brodka told Homer and Marge what Bart did.[1]

Homer and Marge once went there to do the Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve, with Homer impersonating a cashier to get toys for the kids. Those presents were later accidentally burned by Bart at home.[2]

The Simpsons family once went there to do some "Back to School" shopping. Milhouse was also there, and he tried to impress Lisa, but failed.[3]

Another year, hundreds of Springfielders waited outside the store for the release of the latest popular children's toy, Funzo.[4]

Homer once bought there some gadgets for the car. After filling the car with those, he (and the car) ended up falling to the sea. After that incident, Homer loses his driving license.[5]

When Bart once worried that he was becoming an adult, he thought he had to give up his life as a kid. He sat in a kiddie ride outside the store to try and regain his youth, but when Jimbo, Dolph and Kearney came, he went home and decided to give his toys a Viking funeral.[6]

  • The red car outside the Try-N-Save is a level gag in The Simpsons: Hit & Run. Here, the car will rock back and forth, and slow down and explode.
