From, home-owned shops, to regular chain stores, my community has it all. We have Walmart, Target, and the like, as well as a local stores like Toy City, and Joe Peanuts. Its a college town, so we have probably ten pizza places (not exaggerating), and have plenty to do to support this. We have a bowling alley, an ice rink, a theater, as well as a theater for plays and other productions.

We have plenty of bars in the area due to the college. They always have specials and some are expensive, swanky bars and other are cheaper, depending on your preference, you will find what you are looking for. The restaurants are family friendly, and clean with good food. we have a few of those mom and pop diners with homemade cooking, with a really nice atmosphere.
About ten years ago we had some flooding, and we do get snow with the occasional blizzard, but the blizzards are not that disastrous. We do get some ice storms from time to time, but it isn't usually sever, depending on where you live surrounding this town, your power might go out during an ice storm for a day or two.
