during  the current economic collapse there will be a few winners, some survivors  and a passel of losers. who will survive? and why? what makes some businesses more successful than others?

if you get an extra good feeling about entering a grocery store in missoula chances are that store is Orange Street Food Farm. stand in line with your loaf of Le Petit Outre Champaigne bread and your gallon of 1% milk and a six pack of Moose Drool and chances are there are many people who know you. the conversation is flowing at every check stand while folks exchange greetings and catch up with each other. the employees are relaxed and friendly, the musak is usually upbeat motown or high energy oldies. the produce is fresh, the beer is well stocked, even the meat department has approached Rosauer like quality at much better prices in the past couple of years. it just feels good to shop there. what is your favorite business in your town and why do you think it will survive? or do you? if so, why? if not-why not?
