For those who don't know Piggly Wiggly is gone.


There are still plenty of Piggly Wigglys in the south.

And Aldis

And Sam's Club...

And guns...

Why not the south, again?

Yes, but it certainly makes for a terrible 1/3 of the year. The cold can kill just as fast as hunger (if not faster). Shouldn't staying somewhere that you can remain healthy easier? And, somewhere that you can find food year-round?

Still never responded to this apocalypsepal, and what's wrong with the northern areas? Have you ever spent a winter up here? How about camping in the snow perhaps? I used to camp during the winter while in Boy Scouts and have also lived here in Moscowchusetts for almost 53 years now. How about you, please tell of your experience up north if you would be so kind.
Time to get up, you're not dead yet...

Sorry to disillusion you but most of the Piggly Wiggly's are gone
Have been for a while
There are still a few but I think they are independents
The main warehouse was closed and is now something else.
I used to pass by it once in a while when I would be in SC, you could see it from the interstate.

Have you ever spent a winter in the south then? I used to live in Canada and now live in the US south, so I've experienced both. Fighting the cold as well as a walking horde of undead is far less preferable to holding up in an area where the temperature is a little more ... temperate.

No need to get so touchy.

Perhaps you live in a different area than I do. There is a PW just down the street as well as one in at least every other small town around me. I am in proximity to half a dozen, in short driving distance.

All but one of the local ones are gone.
According to the article there are less than 2 dozen left and they are going to become something else or go independent.

Interesting. I must just be living in the Piggly Wiggly bubble.
Sigh.

I have only been in a Piggly Wiggly once--no great loss as far as I am concerned.

As for north or south, I am from the North, but now live in the south. If a zombie apocalypse happened, I am packing my sorry ass up and heading back to snow country. The north winters are survivable and hopefully the zeds will freeze solid. Here in the south the damn things would be active year round--with the possibility of a night time chilling. Perhaps in the mountains, in the south, it would be do-able, but the north has more to offer.

(Of course, Serenity would be the one exception.)
