Why Banking Local Matters

We’ve all heard of the importance of shopping local. We’ve seen signs, commercials, and ads asking people like you and I to spend our dollars investing in the community. And it’s true. Spending money at local businesses helps to reinvest back into the community, making it an even better place to live. But what if I told you that it’s important not just to shop local but to bank local as well? Here are 3 reasons why banking local matters:


  1. Local banks create jobs in the community- Every time you choose Oconee State Bank you are choosing to support dozens of employees that live and work within your own community.
