The majority of jobs in this area are part-time. Tons of restaurants, bars, and grocery stores. There are not many types of full-time jobs available unless you have a medical degree or work in the gas and oil industry.

Punxsutawney is home to many personally owned businesses. We have a few grocery stores and hardware stores but the business is becoming slow due to larger businesses moving in such as Wal-Mart and Home Depot. I have to travel at least 30-45 minutes in order to find the retailers I enjoy shopping at. We do not have a shopping mall or many retail stores at all.
There are not many choices when you are ready to move out of your parents home. We have lots of retirement apartments and assisted living facilities. Some student housing is available but typical apartments are scarce and barely existent.
