As part of our Buy Local, Bank Local program, we gave Family Trust employees $5 to spend locally, and asked them to tell us their favorite local spots to shop. Check out what they said about these local businesses.
|Local Spot||I like this spot because…|
|Page 6 Boutique||“They have such cute stuff. Also, they are a local place that sell Toms (my favorite shoes).”|
|Dave’s Comics||“There’s just a very personal atmosphere and the staff do their best to make conversation. From wall to wall, there’s something to do with comics. It’s a great way to escape.”|
|The College Shoppe||“They have so many different things to cheer on our favorite teams! Go Gamecocks! :-) They have excellent customer service. They are always so friendly and willing to help you find whatever you need.”|
|White Horse Restaurant||“It represents a 40-plus year old tradition of good food with local, friendly people.”|
|Amelie’s French Bakery||“Everything about this place is wonderful and unique, and really contributes to the downtown vibe.”|
|Plato’s Closet||“You can’t beat the low prices for such nice clothes & accessories.”|
|Animal Supply House||“Best place to buy quality dog food & treats at reasonable prices. The store owner & employees are very knowledgeable and they are active in the community with local animal shelters and dog-related fundraising events.”|
|Book Knack||"They have both new and used books for a discount! They will “buy” your books from you for store credit, and you can use the credit toward other books!"|
|Crossings on Main||“I have always loved this store because of the different items they have in there. Plus, I have known the owners my whole life and I enjoy being able to support their business!”|
|Synergy Yoga & Wellness||“I love their instructors because they encourage you to push yourself further each class. My balance, flexibility and strength has already improved in only a few months.”|
With our Buy Local, Bank Local program through Dec. 31, credit union members earn double awards points when using their Family Trust Debit card or Platinum Awards credit card. Five $100 cash prizes will be awarded to cardholders who shop locally during that time.
Family Trust employees receive $5 and pledge to spend it locally.
