I dont consider taking things you need to survive looting.
There was a power outage in the neighbourhood a few years ago, so of course there was no power to run the cash register at 7/11, or London Drugs. The staff had to kick everyone out of the store & lock the doors until the lights came on again (company policy).
Shoppers on the other side of the street still had power, but by the time I got there it had been stripped bare of things like batteries, candles, &tc that you want during a power outage. The clerk was shocked/laughing at what people were buying 'just in case' - only because the power was out.
What do you think will happen after The Big One?
I'm not expecting any store to be open for a week or more (except the ones hit by looters) because the store staff would be more concerned about themselves and their families after the event.
