I think that is more common there than here. As you know I'm from California, and it wasn't anything to jump in the car (or even on a bus before I had a car) and go to other towns to shop, for entertainment, or just to go somewhere different. But so many of the people here look at us like we are nuts when we go to Charlotte just because we want to eat out, or because we want to shop at Best Buy, or whatever reason. So many of them are willing to put up with the meager offerings in this tiny town rather than drive somewhere else now and then. I do believe in financially supporting my town, and we do, but sometimes we just have to go somewhere else!
