Welcome to Chesapeake Bank’s blog, It’s All About CommunitySM. We’re a business that prides itself on community values, so we decided to further our reach and create an online presence that would speak to not only our friends and families on Main Street, but to our virtual community, as well.
One of the main drivers for starting a blog was our Shop Local event last November. What began as a day to encourage locals to spend their dollars within their community, turned into something that well-exceeded our expectations. The success was so great, our Shop Local initiative has turned into a regional movement, prompting us to continue our Shop Local efforts.
During the weeks leading up to and following Chesapeake Bank’s Shop Local events (every April and November), we will be highlighting participating merchants and showcasing other shop local initiatives, whether it be in the eastern Virginia region, or elsewhere. Continuing the community theme throughout the year, we will share stories from our community members and our local branches.
Stay tuned to our blog for the latest updates for this month’s Shop Local event on Saturday, April 27. We encourage our readers to share our stories, your stories, within your networks, online through social media or in-person. It’s All About CommunitySM; and our success is your success.
