    shops are ok lots of big box stores vs local establishments. strong buy local movement w/ radio play, tv ads, billboard signs etc. many restaurants, also too many. there are only 2 home improvement stores with 30 mins. many smaller more hardware stores w/ decent selections & costs many auto service shops but it took a while to finally find a shop I like and don't feel like they are there just to overcharge me
