Before Mainstreet we were with a large bank that didn’t provide advice and were inflexible- they weren’t interested in our business’ needs. We’ve been with Mainstreet now for over 20 years and have never looked back. With our Mainstreet advisor it’s like speaking with a friend. Our advisor takes the time with us and even swings by the store if we need help. We never had this treatment and support with the big banks. Mainstreet has always been encouraging in our desire to grow our business so we can better serve our customers and community. With Mainstreet’s support we have increased our retail space and made several store improvements over the years. We refer friends and family to Mainstreet because they care about the people that bank with them and truly want to see them succeed.

“Since COVID began people are spending a lot of time at home and wanting to improve their spaces. Whether it is painting, sprucing up a bathroom, DYI repairs, gardening and more, there has been a lot of demand for projects people can do while staying home. It’s also been a challenge as wood demand has outpaced supply and we’ve seen the price of wood skyrocket to 30-50% more compared to last year” explains Cathy.
