Mom-and-pop shops are the majority of what is in Johnstown and I wouldn't want it any other way. We have a local pizza place that really takes care of the customers and most of the kids that go to school in the area work here. There also are local coffee places that do a really great job of connecting with the people in town. There are a few chains like McDonalds and Wendy's, but overall Johnstown does a really good job of supporting the local businesses. There have been big companies that were run out of the area because all the small shops took business away.

Coming from a very small town there are not many large companies in the area. While we have a Kroger, and a few different fast food places, and some car dealerships, most of the businesses are small shops owned by the people in the town. We have several auto shops and small diners. The town is lacking in other shops like retail places, but a store like that would not survive in our small town.
While our police force isn't very large, we do not usually need them to be. The only crimes that cops typically report and driving related. The area is safe and there are not many incidents at all where you would not feel safe walking down the sidewalk anywhere in town.
