Its a small town, so most everything is family owned. While you may not get a good deal or the best quality, you'll be happy to know you are buying local and therefore helping the economy

There are a few restaurants that haven't closed up yet, but they aren't the best. Most of the jobs in the area are already taken and the people are lucky to earn at least minimum wage
There are absolutely no bars, and all of the restaurants close early.
