Eminence Reviews

It's a very small town. We have very little to do. The small population and lack of attractions to draw people in usually result in small businesses not doing well or being able to survive very well. This is pretty much a live-in-only town. If you plan to do anything, It's within your best bet to travel the twenty minutes to the next county over.

We are a small town where everyone knows everyone. Very rarely do you hear of a crime happening, but if it does, it's usually something small that isn't going to affect anyone else (like drug charges). When there is a threat, the police answer quickly and effeciently
If your a teen or young adult, you pretty much either work at the new McDonalds, Dairy Queen, Snappy's, or somewhere out of town. If your an adult, the new CVS, Dollar General, or Norms are your only job opportunities. You are still better off to head out of town and look for employment
