About Us

We started our business, The Preparedness Store & Bosch Kitchen Center, in 1996.  We have always been interested in being self-reliant and have taken every opportunity through the years to learn all we could.  Eventually, Rusty started teaching classes and even ran a small home-based business in Arizona.  We loved the atmosphere of Idaho, so we moved here with the hopes of opening a retail store. Fifteen years later, thanks to the support of the community and those who travel to visit our store, we are still able to help, provide and teach others about emergency preparedness, whole grain cooking, self-reliance and much more.  We love being able to help others and see their excitement.


Our goal and commitment is to provide top quality products at the most affordable price, and offer fast, helpful and personal service which we feel we can do by keeping this a small, family owned business.


Thank you for your interest and please feel free to stop by our store, call or email with any questions – we look forward to serving you in any way we can!
