Baxter Reviews

3 reviews
Baxter is becoming quite a hub Luther summer months. Our surrounding area includes beautiful lakes, lush golf courses, and beautiful resorts. There are so many things to do and see.
Review Baxter
I can usually get what I need but have to go to only one store. There is usually only one option of each store. However, it is nice being able to get whatever I need.
There are usually a lot of jobs but they are low paying jobs. Most of them don't require a college degree and do not require much skill.
