Ithaca, NY is a small town who are not known for there chain restaurants, but for the original restaurants. Most of the restaurants use most of their ingredients from the local business that surround them. For example the bred that is given out who be from the Ithaca bakery and the condiments would be locally made condiments. There is one mall, it is smaller than a mall that you see on a bigger city. Though it is small there is still the wide known department stores that you would see in any mall, they are just more scaled down.

There are very few chain buisnesses. Most are locally owned!
Since the city is small and sparse, small businesses tend to lose service and evacuate. Needless to say, retail stores and shops carry less quantity of items for profitable reasons.
