Shinnston is a great little town. Recently visited the city park and I have to say it is one of the nicest parks in WV, so well maintained, a wonderful addition to the town. Small town America, does not get any better.

Was pleased to see some nice businesses in town. I have to say that as a long time business owner, now retired, some of the businesses in town need to spend a little time on curb appeal. Take a little time to clean the windows and sweep the street in front of the business,take a few minutes to pull any weeds popping up through the sidewalk and areas in front of the business, add something to attract customers, planters in front, bright curtains at the windows, plenty of lighting, bright signs to attract customers.
Game Day/ A's Pizza serves some of the best Pizza in the state but there is really nothing to catch your eye while driving through town, the place always looks dark inside. My advice would be to hang some red and white check curtains to the side of the window, put a round table in the front window with a nice lamp on it, Keep the lamp on while the place is open, decorate the table with some Italian decor. I know the place is a sports place but the menu serves some of the best Italian food around. Maybe put a few planters in front. Some businesses have the right idea, nice displays to attract the customer. Work on curb appeal, it is so important. Just some thoughts. Love the town of Shinnston and want to see all the businesses prosper.

Improving curb appeal could also include chasing off loiterers and vagrants.

The new theater at the park is great. Shinnston is a nice town. I agree regarding the curb appeal. A little effort will have great results.
