    There are a few manufacturing company here so the jobs are there.
    Review Akron
    Small town with the necessity. More mom-and pop stores than chain. yes. We can get pretty much what we need in our town.
    Housing does not seem to be a problem where I live. utilities are not bad comparing to other city/town.
