Albina Community Bank: "extend opportunity to the under-served wherever the need exists"

I've been using Albina Community Bank for a year or more after leaving the bad, inattentive, non-community-based, and slow (in my opinion) service of Washington Mutual.

Amy is posing an interesting question over at the Peal Insider on whether the Pearl is a community or not. We'd argue that the Pearl District is a community. Perhaps we don't share a common neighborhood “need” as Row mentions, but we certainly share many similar interests. Looking down (I guess up) from my inner […]
