Spartanburg, SC is made up of a lot of local businesses, which is one of my favorite aspects of this town. It is a small town but the local stores make it unique and grand. I work part time at a local business called Upstate Tailgate, we sell Clemson University and University of South Carolina merchandise and it is a major hit among locals and even those from out of town.

The restaurants in Spartanburg, SC are nothing great. The vast majority are corporate type restaurants which do not provide the hometown feel like a locally owned restaurant would.
If you work in the health care field than you are fine as far as finding a job goes because there are many hospitals and doctor's offices in the area but other than that, it's a small town with not many great job opportunities.
