Prepping in New England

Does anyone have any suggestions on South Shore (MA.) lOCATIONS to pick up any form of prepping supplies? Water storage, long shelf-life food, portable solar equipment etc.

      Most of my preps have come from Amazon and Walmart.  The most economical way to purchase long shelf-life food, is to buy in bulk from say Walmart, and put in plastic pails yourself.  You can store rice, beans, dried pasta, salt, sugar, etc. this way.

      Good discussion here:

        Thanks, I have done the Wal-Mart stuff and the CLDS. Now I am leaning towards water supplies and electronics, solar etc. I didn’t know if there was anything in the area.

      There’s an LDS food storage center in Worcester that would be a good place to buy food with very long shelf life.

      Worcester Massachusetts Welfare Home Storage Center, 231 Brooks Street, WORCESTER, Massachusetts 01606-3307

      Thursday: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
      Saturday: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
      Please call to confirm hours of operation.


      But I would also second Redneck’s suggestion that most supplies can be purchased online and delivered. Even for buying LDS food, going in person just saves you a delivery fee.
