That's simple.....a brothel house. Not to be confused with Waffle house, even though they rhyme. Good luck with your business!

The kids around here would love a skating rink. West Plains used to have one for years but the new management couldn't make money so it went down. It was in a high rent district. You could locate it in a less expensive location.

You will invest your money and a year later you will sell for pennies on the dollar to get out of here. Unless your retired and the kids are grown, who seriously decides to move to West Plains to start a business and live!!!!!

Sounds like you aren't giving any credit to these people who want to start a business. They may be very successful, just because you aren't just quit making your personal business seem like its that way for all here. It's not. Lots of people make good money here. There's not as much to do here but we are close to places that have much to do.

list the buisnesses in town who make good money,,,besides the cid tax,,,and 100 miles in any direction to have much to do isnt close,,,thats 100 miles there and a 100 miles back,,,thats 200 miles or 3-4 hrs driving time,,,,so if you leave at 6am,,,you will arrive at around 8 or 9,,,then a day full of fun until lets say 6pm,,,then guess what?,,,a 2 hr drive home,,,am getting tired just posting this,,,and thats on top of when you arrive home your house or shed hasnt been broken into,,,cuz the crime rate is way way high for a small town this size,,,the only people making good money in this town is the few who were left their property to them in a will by the real hard worker,,,their dead reletives,,,doctors,,,lawyers and the county court house and city hall thru fines and the 2 funneral homes,,,all the rest fight for every penny they can scrape out of a hard working locals pockets,,,a sign for any investor or buisness person to look for in any town is how many doller general stores a town has,,,west plains has what? 7,,,thats alot of cheap goods store for a small town the size of west plains,,,so stop trying to lure people into the west plains trap,,,cuz if their not related to the certain few,,,they will struggle big time,,,

We need a FEMA camp especially made for the local Liberal known only as..."tim". We'll feed him bacon burgers and chocolate shakes 24/7 until he explodes and then we'll close the FEMA camp down. Mission accomplished.

Brick and mortar retail is mostly dead except for groceries and hygeine items. Family Dollar and Dollar Tree are merging, then Dollar General might buy them, and it will all be Walmart and Dollar General duopoly with a lot of drug pushers like Walgreens. The independents arec closing ever week. What is in the business incubator that used to be a furniture store that closed decades ago? Have any businesses made it from there other than handicap assistance and attorneys? You could start a service business, doing what, we don't know, but someone is already doing it and customers would never know who you are by the time you went bust and closed shop.

Well, for one, Dennis Specialty Cuts is one who started from humble beginnings and is a thriving business. Home town business not a corporation in another country. Cafe 37 is another thriving home grown business. Not going to name them all. We have 3 Dollar Generals. Lmao!

This just me but I don't really think OP is moving here and starting a business..just another person starting up a bs topic...I could be wrong but odds are seriously against it.

You do know the CID tax has been done for quite a while now! West plains city doesn't give up their taxes like MO. You'll get a little over 5% off.
