'San Andreas' movie causes sales spike at earthquake preparedness store
The Rock can't save everyone when the "big one" hits California.That's why nervous people in The Golden State are running to buy their earthquake disaster kits, and one earthquake preparedness company is raking in the profits from the paranoia surrounding the "San Andreas" movie.
TMZ reports the disaster movie has been good news for the company, who has seen a 300-percent increase in disaster kit sales! One of the best selling items for $34.95 is the Quake Alarm, which looks just like a fire alarm, but can detect an earthquake's sound wave before the main shock. The real shock comes from the other bestseller a $250 Deluxe Emergency Preparedness Kit! It comes with a duffel bag, two ponchos, two blankets, sleeping bags, food bars, candles, fire starter sticks and much more.
TMZ reports the company raked in $100,000 off the kits in the past two weeks alone since the movie came out.
