On Tuesday, June 20, Albina Community Bank will resume its innovative BizMob program with an event at Beaumont Florist in Beaumont Village. Albina’s BizMob program is designed to promote the bank’s neighborhood business customers and reinforce connections within the communities they serve.
From 11:00 a.m. to noon, Albina associates will pass out flowers to anyone walking or driving by the flower shop at 4201 N.E. Fremont St. The flowers will come with cards attached that can be dropped off at the bank’s Beaumont branch, or at the florist, and one card will be drawn to win a Beaumont Florist gift certificate. Neighbors can also enter the raffle by stopping by the Beaumont branch anytime throughout the week.
“We always strive to be interactive with our clients and this program is a great way to demonstrate that capability,” said Mike Hager, customer service manager for Albina’s Beaumont branch. “We are not a bank that just wants to provide a warehouse for the assets of our customers. We want to celebrate and participate in their business and create a ‘buzz’ for them.”
“Mike and the team at Albina have been so great to work with,” said Amy Walling, Beaumont Florist owner. “They took good care of me and I’d recommend them to anyone who is starting their own business. I’m looking forward to this opportunity to show off my business and celebrate Beaumont Florist.
Walling has worked at the shop for 26 years and took over the business when her friend, Patty Scarpelli, retired in September.
