The local business in my area is pretty good. There are the small town shops where you can get stuff you can't get anywhere else, but we also have a couple larger businesses like; Wal-Mart, Pizza Hut, Pizza Ranch, and gas stations. I can mostly get everything that I need in this area, the only thing that is a bit of a drive to get would be clothing. The closest big city is only an hour away though.
Review Bluffton Township
Wadena is a very small town but we have many great restaurants! Our restaurants are very friendly with the customers and with each other. Our town is great for a dinner date and the food is usually very tasty.
In my opinion, there are a lot of older people working at high school jobs. It is harder for a high-schooler to find a job they would slightly enjoy because older people are working them. It is somewhat frustrating but it is what it is. There is also many older people that do not have a job.
