  • Largest Employers and Industries Industry is still a relatively important part of Canton's economy with 30% of working men being involved with manufacturing - the Timken Company, makers of tapered roller bearings, are one of the largest employers in the community. Education and health institutions are also major employers, with around 30% of working women being employed by organizations in this sector. 16% of the area's jobs are provided by wholesale and retail services - the stores at the Belden Village Mall for example hire hundreds of people from local neighborhoods.
  • Local Restaurants Some little piggies might go to market, but others go to heaven - or Hog Heaven at least, an open flame BBQ restaurant that serves big pork flavors and equally big portions. If you're after something a little more refined there are plenty of options downtown, and Lucca is one of the best examples. Owner and chef John Schory has created a menu of beautiful Italian dishes while always striving to use fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The result is delicious, but if that sounds like it might be a little pricey there are more casual restaurants that are still tongue-pleasing.
  • Weather and Climate Classified as having a humid continental climate, you'll need to pack your sweaters for winter in Canton as average lows in January regularly dip to 19 degrees Fahrenheit. You'll also need a shovel handy to clear up that snowfall - typically there'll be around 47 inches. As summer approaches the temperature (and humidity level) creeps up, resulting in highs in the low 80s during July, while thunderstorms become fairly common.
  • Local Shopping The Belden Village Mall is your typical city shopping center, with three large department stores supporting dozens of smaller stores selling everything from toiletries to toys. Ample car parking and a good selection at the food hall makes this a convenient place to shop, but if you're after something a little out of the ordinary you should head downtown. You'll find a more eclectic mix of stores here, including a family run jewelers, a record store with a ridiculously big vinyl selection, and also the weekly Canton Farmers' Market every Saturday.
