I Can’t Find A Bank Anywhere! Not!
I am sure you, my dear readers ….have noticed when out and about….. the number of the same type of eateries that are sitting side by side or across the street from each other.
Of course, I do know there are those much smarter than I, who have figured demographics and such….. which usually promises newly established fast food places that …”if you build it, they will come”!
I am not sure that I agree with the concept of there being enough business for everyone in a one block area…but what do I know?
While living in Seattle, I did note…. there is at least one street corner with a Starbucks on each corner.
So given that this is the way to establish a new business, I couldn’t help but notice something similar, just a few blocks from our home on a very busy street.
Yep, not just one or two banks, but 8 banks.
I have to confess that I did’t quite understand the name of the Fifth Third Bank….until I learned the Fifth Third traces its origins to the Bank of the Ohio Valley, which opened its doors in Cincinnati in 1858.
In 1871, that bank was purchased by the Third National Bank. With the turn of the century came the union of the Third National Bank and the Fifth National Bank, and eventually the organization became known as “Fifth Third Bank.”
See? You never know what bits of trivia you will learn from this Blog! 🙂
The answer must be “yes”….although I barely have enough for one bank! 🙂
Are there other cities with multiple banks or exact same businesses jamming up one street corner?… or is it only Seattle, Atlanta and our little corner of the world?
“Just sayin'”…“just curious”! 🙂
Have a great week-end my dear readers!
Just in case you were curious as to the connection of the pair of turtle doves in the featured image…there is none. I just took their picture because…well, just because! 🙂
