The local businesses are great in this area. We have everything we need, there are a variety of stores. If one store does not have what you need you can always find it some where else. Of course you can always find everything at walmart.

We have had a lot of companies to move there business over seas, therefore we have a lot of empty building. so we have a lot of banks and restraurants and we have quite a bit of people that farm for a living. We can never for some reason to get companies to come in to a small town.
