The Store next Door is the storefront next to Bob's Burgers on the opposing side from Mort's It's Your Funeral Home & Crematorium. Similar to "It's Your Funeral," this storefront also features clever word play, but unlike the Belchers' long-time steady neighbor Mort, it is a revolving door of businesses, often so temporary the sign is crudely painted on a cloth banner. A different business is shown to occupy this storefront in every episode, and thus it is one of the running gags in the show. The following is a list of these doomed ventures:
