Many local business' are corporate companies bow. Very few mom and pop stores left. The customer service around here is horrible, seems as if no one cares because they can go somewhere else and get paid more money for doing less. We have a range of stores anywhere from retail/clothing to almost any type of food you can ask for. The only thing we do not have is coffee shops, we only have Starbucks and that is all.
We have bad drivers, and the worst accident rates.
