Last year we moved our store’s accounts from a multi-national, huge, corporate bank to our local Seattle Bank with a branch just a few blocks away.
Today the Seattle Bank branch manager and assistant manger visited our store. They greeted Nancy and me by name and gave us a gift-wrapped box of chocolates in appreciation of our business.
Not only do they know us and care for us and our business, we are actually earning interest on our savings account whereas the former Big bank seemed to always have fees that ate up the small “earned” interest.
It makes a difference where you decide to spend your money.
