To continue our efforts to promote shopping in Vinton, we are again offering the 0% Holiday Loan Program. This program allows shoppers to borrow money from a Vinton bank at 0% interest for up to 6 months to make purchases at participating businesses.  The banks participating in this VU promotion this year are Farmers Savings Bank and Cedar Valley Bank & Trust.

The process is easy as 1 – 2 – 3!

  1. Stop into either Farmers Savings Bank or Cedar Valley Bank & Trust and fill out some paperwork. Note: You do NOT need to be a current customer at either bank to participate.
  2. Start shopping at any of the participating businesses! Pick up your Christmas gifts! Need a new set of tires? Been putting off buying that new couch? Now is the time!
  3. Repay your loan by May 1, 2016 and pay NO INTEREST! Any loans not paid off by May 1, 2016 will start to accrue standard bank interest.

2015 participating businesses include Cameron Clothing, Clingman Pharmacy, Ervin Motor Company (with limits), G&G Auto, Henkle Creek Mercantile, Jessy’s Gem Gallery, John’s Tire Service, Koop’s Automotive, L Marie Boutique, LaGrange Pharmacy, McDowell’s, Michael & Dowd Furniture and Appliance, Nature’s Corner, Nick’s TV & Appliance, Rabe Home Comfort, The Hope Chest & Theisens.

The 0% Holiday Loan Program runs now through December 31, 2015 but don’t waste any time! Head down to the bank today to get signed up!
