Review Bartow
Bartow is a small town with a big heart. There are several restaurants and mom and pop stores to shop at. Not only does it have small business owners they also have a Publix, Walmart, Lowes, Office Depot and other great places to shop. Bartow is home to Stacy Butterfield Clerk of Courts as well. Come for a visit to see the great things this small home town has to offer.
I like how Bartow is a small town and everybody knows everybody, so know matter where you go, you know someone is watching out for you. While having everybody know you is great, it also means that they get in your business and cause drama. I do wish that there was not as much drama in the town as there is.
