    I think it would be hard to compete with fred meyers wallmart sams etc. they are doing the same thing but on a very large scale.

    There is stuff from the lower 48 that I would like to get shipped up here, like furniture from ikea, or stuff from estate sales etc. Usually shipping turns out to be too much. I think that for some things it would be worthwhile and others not. How much would a 20ft conex cost to ship?

    i was thinking that useing save by case food warehouse for a once a year typle supply run
    see if we can get them chreaper down the seattle or other areas. and shipped to a main point and the unit loaded up with all the items the are order then shipped to the main point and we go and pick up all the supplies
    if we could make where like three or four familys pooled the cost of the items and shipping togerther ..
    but i would have to see first if it going be worth it..
