Local will vary by location. The western states can present challenges for folks who live a long way from anything. Ten, 20, 50 miles is not unusual for many. I once had some friends in a tiny-tiny town in Oregon that was 65 miles via gravel road from a gas station or anything that resembled a real town.
For me, I'm 5 to 10 miles from most stores. Grizzly is about 150 miles away as is the first real shopping mall.
