The local businesses in this area are what you would expect in a lower middle class neighborhood. You can get everything you need within a 1-2 mile radius. The stores are not run down but they are not as nice as some of the stores on other sides of town. Instead of a lot of 3-4 start restaurants to chose from, there are a lot of fast food businesses. There is a variety of stores, just not as new and kept up as they could be.

There are a lot of convenient stores and fast food restaurants. A few mechanic shops... But not a lot of what most people would consider to make a career out of. The majority of possible employment opportunities in the area would be considered a "Highschool Job" or "College Job". Pretty much, a job to get by.
Well, I like my neighborhood. Everything is conveniently surrounding my home. Walmart, Neighborhood Walmart, Dillon's, Walgreens, QuikTrip, and fast food restaurants. It's nice that everything is not too far away from me.
