Standish is a small town surrounded by corn fields. It has amazing schools and people. The teachers at the school are very supportive, along with the principles. We have tons of small businesses owned by locals. It is the kind of town where everyone pretty much knows everyone.

We have way to many auto part stores, and they all compete with each other. Ever since O'Reillys came to Standish the other part stores are losing business. Our grocery stores are pretty descent they have almost everything but, it is not super cheap compared to Walmart. We have a great clothing store Shopko, it has great brands and prices.
There are a lot of fast food jobs available. People complain way to much on not being able to find a job but around here it always seems like McDonalds or A&W are always hiring. There aren't a lot of career jobs available around here unless you have certain qualities, A lot of people around here work at pizza restaurants or fast foods.
