The apocalypse is nigh! That’s what some Mormons in Utah believe, and so ardently that they’re filling their shelves with freeze dried food and stocking up on blankets.
“There is a sense of urgency, like something is up. A lot of people are mentioning things about September, like a financial collapse,” Ricardo Aranda of Thrive Life, which sells freeze-dried food, told the Salt Lake Tribune.
Sales at the store have risen 500 percent. And Thrive Life isn’t the only local prepper haunt to be “crazy busy” of late.
What’s up is the apocalypse, and these prepping Mormons have a date pinned down for the catastrophic event — September 28. So clear your calendar, cancel whatever you have planned for later this month, and return your Halloween costumes — because it will all be over before the month is out.
