What stores will NOT close

This thread is the reverse of @southbound Are Stores closing in your area?

With brick & mortar stores seeming to closing all around us, what stores do you believe will survive?

My list:
-Grocery stores: we all need to eat.
-Home improvement stores (Lowes, Home Depot): A need will always exist but a major shake up/realignment is on the way.
-Heating, A/C plumbing: Like home improvement stores they will always be need, BUT, in recent years I've noticed smaller company's being squeezed out in favor of big, multi state company's.
-Walmart: I don't see them going under for a long time, BUT, Amazon.com is taking direct aim at them and their business model. Should be interesting.

This is, obviously, a very small list of what I could write.

What say you? What stores are essential and will be around for the foreseeable future.

Restaurants. Although the profit margin is usually slim for most, there will always be a demand.

I can't see the gas station/convenience store model ending any time soon.

CVS. In my area, they are EVERYWHERE and they are always busy.

Why do you hate your dates so much that you would take them to a dump like this?

We protect ourselves from lies,
By fanatically holding to our own truths.
But when our truths turn to fanaticism,
Our truths become the Lie.

They just built a brand new one near me. Very nice.

Liquor stores. Times are bad? People drink. Times are good? People drink.

I refuse to make anyone a priority in my life who considers me nothing more than an option.

You can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.

You also can't order it online. Yes, there are some wine subscription sites, but there are many states where you can't get these delivered.
