Bishop is a small town with small town businesses.
The biggest company we have here is either Dollar General or Dairy Queen. Other than that, its a 15 minute drive to HEB or Walmart.

I have lived here in Bishop almost my whole life, I have been living here since I was in Pre-K which was the year 2004. My experience has been great and I love this little ol' town of mine!
It’s a small town, about 30 minutes from Corpus Christi. I would like to see the town at it’s full potential.
