There are many one-stop shops in Anderson, SC. One of my favorites is Target. I do my shopping for clothes, groceries, and home items in the same place!

There are plenty of jobs available in this area but I don't think a lot of employees would say it is their dream job. Anderson is growing with big cities like Greenville and Atlanta not too far away.
