By all accounts, Saturday November 29, 2014, was not your typical Saturday. At least not at 2 N. Church Street in West Chester, where DNB First was proud to open its doors in celebration of Small Business Saturday. In recognition of this important annual event, conceived by American Express, the Bank hosted an Open House in West Chester featuring events and prize giveaways designed to help bring customers to local businesses and to raise donations for The Salvation Army, which has been so vital with helping families in need during the holiday.
The event was a great success, rallying local families and members of the community to come out, including West Chester Mayor Carolyn Committa (pictured middle) and Lieutenant Maria Corraliza (pictured right) with The Salvation Army in support of local businesses and giving. Prizes featuring gifts from local shops were awarded and entertainment included holiday music from The Salvation Army and carols from the Girl Scouts.
The event was of special significance to local business owners who appreciated the support, as one local retailer shared. “Our sales have been down 20% this year and many other local retailers have experienced similar challenges. We hope to see other events that help support local businesses.”
Small Business Saturday at DNB First was a fine example of our great community pulling together to support the people and organizations that work so hard to make life better for us all.
