Corner store close. The owner is friendly and cares about his customers.nothing unique. Papa John's. In the house.

Love the location. Love the quietness. Love the scenery. Close to creek.. good restaurant's are here too

I like that I know everyone. I also like that I've been here for a long time. I also like that there is a lot to eat within walking distance from my house.

My neighbors are great . Stores close by that can walk to. Restaurants close by to hang out grab soon food and chill

There is a Walgreens, CVS, and United Dairy close by and a shopping strip within 4 miles with a Krogers, Loews, Dollar Tree, and several smaller shops. There is nothing really unique. pping strip within 4 miles with a Kroger

I do not like any of the shopping or stors in my area. I do not wish to go out to do the stuff in my area that my city has to offer dew to safety and being over priced . I do not have a favor for any businesses in my city
