Finney County is placed just right to become an economic center for a large area spanning Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Texas. Many consumers from the surrounding rural areas travel to Finney County for supplies and recreation. In doing so they bring money and jobs to the community. While staying in Garden City and Holcomb they spend money on gas, hotels, food, and other activities that are not available in smaller communities.
While Finney County benefits from being the trade center for the surrounding region, it also has the benefit of being relatively close to numerous growing metropolitan cities. 4 hours from Wichita and Amarillo, and 5 hours from Denver, Finney County is within a comfortable driving distance of many services and businesses that aren't available outside of a large metropolis, while being distant enough to avoid competition.
