In small towns, there's often a few instances of two businesses in one building, so I was wondering, what has been the oddest combination in your small town or a community you know of? I know recently we had car washing business and a bail bonds service in one, but the car washing thing closed, and I think the bail bonding service relocated.

Are you talking about two separate businesses - that is, separate entrances, separate staff, etc - in one physical building, or one business - same staff, same entrance, etc - that provides two very different services?

Pizza and "fine" Chinese dining in one restaurant. Not a small town either.

I have a client with a coin operated laundry in the back, and an ice cream, burger & hot dog place in the front. The laundry is open 24/7 and she runs the restaurant daily 7 days a week basically by herself.
