Basically it would be a store where I sold everything from solar panels to wood stoves. I would try to stock anything that would help you live if you lost electricity or shit hits the fan stuff. Do you think there would be an intrest in this type of store? Are there some website already doing this?

There ar a lot of web outlets for the goods you describe. The time to start such a business was summer of 1998. Not to rain on your parade, but it has been done. many went out of business after the Y2k fizzle.

Market's already crowded, but if you offer excellent quality at good prices, I think you might have a chance. Don't quit your day job initially. Make sure you have one hell of an attractive website.

Has the "organic" foods fad hit where you live Crappy? Think about it a minute. These yuppies want food grown without pesticides and herbicides, and they will pay more $$$ for such food. But if a farmer grows his crops without the -cides, he has reduced his overhead a great deal. And he can charge these fools accordingly. [;)] Hell, it might even pay to be a farmer. [:D]

It would actually be a walk in brick and morter store. I was just looking for wholesalers or some stuff on the internet. I am thinking about buying one of the buildings on mainstreet in our little town. I would live in the top two stories and either start my own shop or rent out the bottom. It's a lot better than paying rent and these big old buildings are going for a whole lot cheaper than houses around here. I am just thinking of shops to open on the bottom floor.
