There are very few retail stores in this area. There is a convenience store belonging to a small retail chain in Oregon and Washington and a privately owned "mom-and-pop" convenience store. The chain store has better sales/cheaper prices but the "mom-and-pop" store has a larger variety of items and familiar employees. There is a bar/restaurant that is of average quality. There are 3 restaurants in the area. A Chinese restaurant that is average, a Thai restaurant/donut shop that is above average, and a Teriyaki/Sub restaurant that can be fantastic or fairly nasty depending on what you order.

I love this neighborhood. The people are nice, the schools are good. Shopping is nearby and there is a brand new park that just opened
In the immediate area there are few shops and restaurants that I would either feel comfortable entering or that I have entered and found not satisfying. By not satisfying I mean that (1) the service was poor, (2), the food was sub-par, (3) the items were overpriced, or (4) I can never find what i need at that particular establishment. There are many small businesses in the area but I have found few that I would like to support on a regular basis.
