There is plenty to do in Anderson, especially when the Anderson Towne Center was built a few years ago. Before the towne center was built, residents had to drive up and down the main business road to find the stores they were looking for. Now, most stores are conveniently located in the center. There is even a small movie theater going in soon! In Anderson, you are going to find more name brand shops than mom-and-pop shops.

Perhaps the best restaurants to go to in the Anderson area is Smokey Bones, Butterbee's and Jersey Mike's subs. These are the most popular restaurants available to residents and visitors. Smokey Bones is a bit over priced for what a customer can get, but the quailty is very nice. Butterbee's is the opposite: the pricing is excellent, but sometimes the quality of food isn't great. Jersey Mike's is similar tot he change restaurant Subway, but with better quality ingredients to their sandwiches. The price is a but high for sandwiches, but residents will mainly choose Jersey Mike's over Subway.
Because of the Beechmont strip, which is the main business road in the area, there are plenty of job oppurutinties for people. Many people who get jobs at the companies and restraunts on Beechmont are high school students that go to the two high schools in the area. The largest employer in the area is Kroger. Anderson has what residents call a "disney-land" Kroger meaning the store is huge and carries a variety ethnic foods.
