As recently reported by KOMU, New Opportunities Open For Potential Business Owners:

http://www.komu.com/news/new-opportunities-open-for-potential-business-owners-52281/

In an effort to jump start revitalization in the downtown business district, an integral part of the larger Brick District in Fulton, Missouri’s historic Brick District, The Callaway Bank created a special lending program with a pool of $1,000,000 at a rate of 2%.  This unique area currently has several vacant storefronts providing opportunity to those interested in starting or expanding a business.

 

We hope this offer will encourage prospective business owners to bring their ideas and thoughts to the table to discuss.  There are people out there with ideas, determination and desire to make something happen.  We have money to lend and resources available.  Let’s put their ideas and our dollars on the table and see what we can make happen to revitalize this historic area into a vibrant place where people want to be and want to visit.

 

The offer is targeting a portion of Fulton’s Brick District from Court to Nichols Streets and 4th to 6th Streets.  Current business owners in this area are also encouraged to take advantage of the offer to make desired improvements to their buildings inside and out.  We would also like to hear their thoughts about revitalizing their businesses in the Brick District.

 

The offer has helped “take the cork out of the bottle” so to speak and open discussions.

 

Bottom line – we’ve been serving this area for many years.  We’ve learned from the best that when we rely on a community to keep our doors open, we owe them.   We must give back.  Well, we’re putting our money where our mouth is.  We hope you’ll bring your ideas in, put them on the table and together let’s see what we can make happen.
