Nina, best of luck with your summer job search. I know how time consuming that can be. In my neighborhood the easiest jobs for under 18s to get were at grocery stores as baggers and ice cream scoopers at Cold Stone/Ben&Jerry's/Baskin Robbins.
My local Rite Aid always seemed to hate teenagers. Even when we were customers.
If a group of us walked in at the same time they would send security to follow us.
I live in an area where, outside my town, there is one town of similar size about 20 minutes away, and a mall 30 minutes away. So I'm basically stuck in town if I don't want to be spending half my pay checks on gas money.
Within town I'm extremely limited. We don't have any of those ice cream places you mentioned.
My town is not at a terrible low, but it's not doing fantastically either. Our "main street" is pathetic, 1/3 of the storefronts closed...
Half my friends work at Stop Rite and that's a last resort.

But yeah, there are so many people looking for jobs, which is why it's so hard for people my age.
