Let me just give an example. In my town there is 5 pizza restaurants. I just wanted to know if anyone else has this as well. Like say that there is 8 different chicken restaurants or you have 7 Walmarts in an area you live in. Just curious about this and if this thread is already made then please lock.

There are two McDonald's just down the street from each other near me, not to mention one a few blocks away... There's also a Starbucks inside the Safeway near me, but then a Starbucks right across the street. And one corner where there are 3 gas stations on each corner (one corner doesn't have one).

Yeah lots of pizza here. LOTS. Like 12 or so. After that, coffee... everywhere coffee. Can't go a block without coffee. Although we completely lack a Dunking Donuts, yeah none what so ever. Also only two donut shops, and they're miles apart. Kinda the same with seafood, except there are places, just nowhere cheap. Then again I live in Colorado, about the farthest state from the ocean. (And I really like seafood T.T)

I feel your pain. Being a seafood lover in a landlocked state sucks.

The biggest abundance of a single type of store here would probably be medical marijuana. It truly is everywhere. More Colorado pride, anyone? It would've been natural groceries but our Whole Foods keeps shutting them down.

Oh yeah I forgot about that. There's at least 4 within a block of each other (with two facing each other). And 'Whole Pay-Check' strikes again, as always. Way too popular in Colorado...

Matters what I would consider "my town" since my town is a fairly big metro area when it comes down to it, maybe not something like downtown, even if it isn't that far away like 15 mins... but go 5-10 mins in any direction and you are in a new "city" of the metro area.

That being said down the street from where I live is the big shopping area with the mall and store for a good 5+ block in each direction. Of course mingled in there are all the restaurants. I think there is... 5? Family dining restaurants like Applebee's, Cheddars, Chile's, etc etc. 4 Burger Joints (i'm including Burger King here), a few Oriental places, like Chinese Buffets, Korean BBQ, Sushi Bar type places. I think there is 2 or 3 places that are soft serve ice cream places that are nice.

And that really is just the tip of the iceberg, in no more than 10 mins in any direction those numbers triple if not more and more variety starts popping up.

Also that's just restaurants, stores are the same way. There are 4 electronics stores all just down the street from each other here.

my area is pretty diverse; but they all fall under "fast food" category anyway.

1 pizza hunt, 1 domino, 1 mcdonalds, 1 red rooster, 1 chinese takeaway, 1 fish and chips, 2 thai restaurants, 1 kebab place

We have 5 Gas stations/Food bars across from each other. I walk to the mall and I pass by 3 Starbucks and 2 Tim Horton's. The mall is about 10 a 15-20 minute walk depending on crosswalk luck. We got 3 grocery stores that also sell Chinese/Japanese Food inside the mall.

This actually reminds me of "Today I see that our local Starbucks has shut down . I was not feeling to happy, so I decided to walk across the road the the next Starbucks ).
