WHY AREN'T THERE ANY NEW RETAIL STORES, GROCERY STORES, OR EATING PLACES. ANDREWS IS PROBABLY THE ONLY CITY WITH MORE THAN 11,500 PEOPLE WITH ONE GROCERY STORE, ONE PHARMACY, AND ONE CLOTHING STORE. EVERYTHING IS SO EXPENSIVE AND U DON'T HAVE ANY CHOICES. HEB, WALMART, FAST FOOD CHAINS WOULD BE GREAT. PLACES LIKE LEVELLAND, SWEETWATER, FT STOCKTON AND OTHER TOWNS THE SAME SIZE AS ANDREWS HAVE NUMEROUS MORE CHOICES AS FAR AS FAST-FOOD, GROCERIES, AND RETAIL. MAKES YOU WONDER. IT'S HARD TO LIVE HERE.
