Dunkirk has really improven these past 3 years. they went from having little to no stores to having a 3 new town centers. There is now a Marshalls, Harris Teeter, even many new food places including Chipotle, Taco Bell, Mod Pizza, Jersey mikes, etc. Dunkirk has really became a city where offers everything. For being a small town, they still found a way to have multiple hair dressers, dentists, grocery stores, and hardware stores. I can’t wait to see what they do next.

I love that Dunkirk has many opportunities for work, and many stores that meet residents needs. Dunkirk has food, clothing, gas stations, health care and more. However, Dunkirk lacks a lot of entertainment and things to do for recreation. Dunkirk would be a better place if there was a waterpark, movie theatre, mall or something people could do for fun.
Dunkirk has recently seen a huge boom in the number of local businesses. When I first moved here 12 years ago there was close to nothing here. Today we have businesses ranging in from food, health, and gas. While I am happy about these improvements, they have made no noticeable advances for places where young people can have fun. I believe that as a result of that we have many young people are overdosing and crashing their cars. Overall I want there to be a place where young people can come to learn about the outside world and hopefully that will reduce the amount of drug use.
