I've seen the videos Creators posted about trying to live for 24 hours in a grocery store or places like Target. That got me thinking. How long COULD you survive in a grocery store? Whether you were locked in or it was your home base in a zombie apocalypse, how long would you be able to SURVIVE with that as your only source of sustenance? Today, I'm going to settle in and find out!

One thought I just had - Is it worth considering things you might find in the supermarket that aren’t food but are edible and non-toxic?

If the supermarket has has a skylight, you can use your sewage as a mini crop field and you can use the water and seeds that they have in products Boom.

You said Evan was smoking meat by an open window BUT if the window was open, wouldn't he be able to escape the "locked" grocery store? And if the window was closed, the gas made by the fire would have killed him if he stayed put because he wouldn't be able to breathe.

I'm curious... did he take into account everything that was in the storage room as well? You know. Those double-doors that say "Employees only" where they keep extra products for when they need to restock the shelves?

Did you include the seeds from the produce in the produce department? Normally there are plenty of windows. Potatoes and onions can be cultivated by just saving a small bit of them and in water or just the sun. Putting them in dirt and water after a small while, and they reproduce. And from the rotted fruits as even eats tomatoes and such things like that, he can save the seeds and cultivate in a mixture of the waste and soil and last him a little longer. Seeds stay good for years sometimes. You just dry them on a shelf. you can cultivate a month or 2 apart so there is a longer lasting time food is available. At least that is my thought. Would I be right?? He can also dry or can these supplies himself. Grocery stores normally carry canning supplies and 'how to can' books.
