Best Place to Prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse

Zombie Apocalypse Store


When friends start mysteriously disappearing and your boss develops a strange hankering for human flesh, one store in town has got your survival needs covered. Don’t be deterred by the pale creature perched casually on the roof of the Zombie Apocalypse Store clutching an assault rifle. Hurry inside for deals on 42-ounce cans of fettuccine alfredo with chicken ($39), stun guns ($31) and vicious-looking curved knives ($30 and up). Bone up on your undead-fighting skills with a DVD, or pick up a white “Zombie Beater” tank top to identify yourself as one of the brave souls defending humanity. You may also run into a few Las Vegans stocking up for less-likely disasters, such as an earthquake or terrorist attack. “We like to say that if you’re prepared for zombies,” says employee and resident zombie expert Cole Miller, “you’re prepared for anything.”
