    Buffalo Township Reviews

    The winters here can be very cold, sometimes snowy. The spring we sometimes have a lot of severe thunderstorms and dangerous tornadoes. Summers are usually hot and dry. Fall is usually mild. But all the seasons are always windy.
    Review Buffalo Township
    The main business in this area is Walmart. When you go to Walmart in Great Bend, you may as well count on getting in a bad mood. I have never seen such rude people as the employees and customers in Walmart. The employees act mad if you ask them for help and most of the time the customers are hateful. I don't know if all Walmarts are this way, but the one in Great Bend is awful.
    The best jobs for this area are oilfield workers and farmers.
