As a consumer, you are a key part in helping small businesses thrive. By shopping or dining at small businesses, you’re showing your support for the small businesses in your community.
Small-Business-Saturday-595x291

Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country. Founded by American Express in 2010, this day is celebrated on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, sandwiched in between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

The Impact of Small Business Saturday

Almost 74 million people went out to shop at small businesses on Small Business Saturday in 2012, that was 24% of the total population at that time.

In 2014, an estimated $14.3 billion was spent at small, independent businesses on Small Business Saturday. While that might sound like a lot of money, consider that over $600 billion was spent on Christmas last year.

Why is spending money in your local economy important, you ask? The money you spend locally pays off for you and your community. When you shop local, more of your money stays in your community, and is reinvested into local schools, jobs, wages and other community needs.

My Challenge

My challenge to you is to buy a portion of your gifts this holiday season from local, independent businesses- it does not necessarily need to be on Small Business Saturday.

I have made it my personal goal to buy at least half of my Christmas gifts from local businesses. A few of my favorite local shops include Papers Plus in Gaslight Village, Art of the Table on Wealthy Street, and Kennedy’s Floral & Gift Shop on Cascade Road.

Now get out there and shop local!

Important Information About Procedures For Opening A New Account

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, federal law prohibits us from waiving these requirements.
