Not too many mom and pops shops in the area, but there are some. There are also farmers markets throughout the year. As far as retail stores; there are plenty and you can pretty much find anything you need, unless it's something like a specialty international grocery item. The stores are usually clean, well stocked with friendly staff.

Jobs are abundant, a college degree is needed for most of them, but not all.

Appearance and connections play huge roles as well.
