(Studio) Amboy, Minnesota, is rural town that refuses to die.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Amboy, Minnesota) For years, people have been leaving country to go to city. 5 years ago, Amboy seemed destined for extinction. [Merchant Lois DETHLOFF - says she and husband opened up clothing store because she didn't like seeing empty stores on Main Street] Before long, other merchants began remodeling and opening up other businesses; industry soon followed. [Appliance dealer Craig KRANZ - says if dollars kept within town, money recirculated and everyone benefits.] It's source of community pride not to buy outside Amboy. Hsing. shortage exists in Amboy. Town wants to grow but also wants to keep Amboy a small town.
