I live in a very small town so all of the stores are very traditional small-town stores (for example, we have a 5&10). We have all that we need but lack the convenience of stores like Walmart, Target, bigger grocery stores that have a wide variety of food, and retail shops. However, I feel like the residents of Northville prefer that it remain that way. I certainly do.

The winters are incredibly cold and we get a ton of snow. The summers are beautiful, but far too short. Autumn in the northeast is like nothing else.
The restaurants we have all serve amazing food and are locally owned and sourced. There is little variety but there is definitely quality.
