It is your average suburban life with average suburban people. They have nice houses, and services, but it sometimes feels like the city in Beauty and the Beast that Belle lives in. Average, people do the same thing all the time. Like hit this one mailbox that sticks out on the side of the road. It often gets more and more beat up as I see it. The last time I saw it, the people had cemented it in the ground.
There is a good mix of local stores with big companies. However, there's not enough variety in terms of the smaller businesses. Broomall could use more thrift stores. There's also not many entertainment outlets - the Marple Sports Arena is only good for the middle school crowd. We have to go to neighboring towns for a movie theater and most of our restaurants are in strip malls or shopping centers. No one ever stays in Broomall for a fancy dinner or occasion.
