I don't like the name "Survival Store" - I would call them "Sustainability Stores".
However, but I did find this Survival Store
article in Time Magazine to be inspriing and thought provoking.
Simon Graj, envisions a place where you can get the goods you need — low-cost food, clothing built to last a few winters, a bike to substitute for the new car you can't afford — while offering experiences that help you cope during these difficult times. Why couldn't you float from the food department to the living-and-leisure department, where you could meditate with a local Yogi? Or to the education department, where experts could offer sensible financial advice? "Helping people go fearlessly into the future — and have fun doing it — is the idea,"
We could promote this as one aspect of our life sustaining communities.
