    Personally, I wouldn't move here. I was born in Michigan and I'm staying here until I'm done with college, and then I'm flying the coop!

    Most things in Allegan are overpriced and a person might as well take the drive to Plainwell to get anything at an economical price. There is one Food Thrift Shop that's worth visiting, as well as Little Shop of Hoarders, which is an antique shop.
