When visiting New Jersey, Bruce Springsteen fans invariably want to visit the Stone Pony nightclub in Asbury Park. Kevin Smith fans, on the other hand, need to see the Quick Stop Groceries convenience store in Leonardo. Smith used to work there and it's where he shot most of his iconic first movie, 'Clerks,' in 1993 (and later several scenes for 'Clerks II').

A day doesn't go by without a Smith fan inquiring about 'Clerks,' said the present man behind the counter, Radhakrishna Medidi. "I've had thousands of people ask me about it since I started working here,'' Medidi said. "From all over the world."
