Springfield is a small town just outside of Battle Creek MI. It's fairly quiet, home to a scuba school, gymnastics school, and seasonal farmers market. Over all it's a safe town, close to shopping and only about half an hour from Kalamazoo. Lots of factories in the area, and a local casino provide some job opportunities.

Where I live our local sores are very average I mean there not the worst but there could be a lot of improvements to make them better for the customers. Overall these stores are what i've been accustomed to using so its not so bad when you really think about it.
I think the job opportunity where I live is ok because there are jobs but a lot of them are factory's and don't fit every ones job skills so they don't normally workout.
