Me and my family lived a few mins down the road from the DLM in springboro. Loved the Killer B's.

But I tell ya that is the only grocery store where you see 50k cars and 60k SUV's. It's sort of funny when you a see a woman 5" tall and driving a huge truck with 20" wheels.

Too each his own though

How can anyone complain about a place that has a Woody's market, Dorothy Lane market AND a Trader Joe's? Dayton is heaven on earth!

I left Dayton almost 20 years ago, but sometimes I wish I hadn't left! It's sad that the downtown shopping all closed...my mom, grandma, and I used to take the bus to shop and eat at Rikes, then call grandpa to come get us. It was a special treat.
Things to do--there's tons unless you're too lazy to go find them! The art museum, air force museum, Oregon District, Neon Movies, Carillon Park with the historic area with the Wright Bros. shop, just to name a few! There are still drive in movie theatres, which are nonexistant in other states now. My husband's never been to one at his age! Don't forget the baseball team, too! The farmer's market downtown, Dorothy Lane Market --my parents aren't hoity-toity either, but my dad LOVES their bread--Cassano's Pizza, Marion's Pizza (LaRosa's, blech), Christy's, and I could go on!

There's certainly more to do there than where I currently live...

^^ Sadly, the Woody's market has disappeared into history. The city of West Carrollton demolished the store to make way for new developments. I think a Sonic Restaurant replaced it. It surely was a landmark for that Dayton suburb, and I was so sad to see it go.

^Just curious, but what is the nearest city to Chambersburg? All I have seen of PA is the vast remoteness of I-80 on my way to New York. I guess there is Philly and Pittsburgh (lovely city) but beyond that I know it can be pretty desolate.

The closest bigger city is Hagerstown, MD, which is about 20 miles south of us on I-81. Harrisburg, PA is about an hour north on I-81. It's the state capital so it's bigger than Dayton and offers a lot. I just don't want to drive that hour, just like when I lived in Dayton I didn't want to drive the hour to Cincy or Columbus. Gettysburg is about 30 minutes away on Rt. 30.

Don't get me wrong, I love it here, and it certainly beats the DC Metro area where we recently moved from regarding quality of life. Even though there was non-stop entertainment of all sorts there, it wasn't worth the congestion and rude people.

It would be nice to live near my family again, but this does put me an hour closer to Dayton!

But the "Little Farm" liquor store is still there!

There is a big new bakery across the street where Woodys once was.

^So that's what went in there. I haven't had time to actually go down there and see for myself so all of what I know is second hand, usually from the Dayton Daily News.
