Spurgeon Reviews

Within a 45 minute driving radius you have it all. There are definitely "hubs" of activity and wealth and then there are the quieter, local joints. We have several name brand stores and malls as well as quality chain restaurants. We also have run down downtowns packed with antique shops, mom-and-pop businesses and intimate cafes. We have smaller local health food stories as well as an Earth Fare and Fresh Market. Of course, even the "finer" places in town are moderate compared to the sort of business you might see in a big city. That's part of the charm here.

We have one or two large companies (Eastman Chemical Company) in our area that most of the people work at and the economy of the community depends a lot on the health of those companies. There are many restaurants and some shopping markets that provide entry level jobs. There are a good amount of locally owned shops but most of these shops probably could not afford to hire many employees, if any. Unemployment has been a problem in the past in our area, especially during the recent recession.
