Palmhurst is my home, I am a resident of this town. The location is very affordable you have a variety of stores and restaurants with in less then two miles. I am impressed how he town is growing into a more urban population. The creation of new stores are making the life of the majority of the residents more affordable since, know there is no need to waste gasoline when wanting to go to a neighbor store. The creation of clothing stores, fast food restaurants, drug stores and even a GYM that opened this year has facilitated the life of the residents of Palmhurst. Including the life of my family in general. I am very grateful to call Palmhurst my home.
