You will find that Sperry Avenue offers a variety of stores to choose from. There is a large Wal-Mart, SaveMart, Walgreens, Dollar Tree Store, etc and several restaurants including McDonalds, Panda Express, Taco Bell and Subway. Keep in mind it is a smaller city so if you want large shopping centers, you might want to consider going to Modesto.

If you want to experience some local eateries, you can go to the downtown area of Patterson located off of El Circulo Avenue.
