The local Dollar General convenience store in my home offers products that are just as efficient and cost effective as any larger store. Whether it be food products, cleaning materials, clothing, or entertainment, our town's local Dollar General has much to offer local customers.

The safety within my hometown is pretty well handled. Pedestrians, bicyclists, and drives can travel across town easily without having a major incident. However, the only public transportation vehicles are school buses and vans/cars for the elderly or disabled.
