Did you know there is a new local bank in town?  Merchants Commercial Bank was started 3 years ago by a group of local business people, including yours truely, and we have been a great success.  The main office is located at Tutu Park Mall on St. Thomas and a branch office will open soon at Greenleaf Commons on St. John.  The bank is FDIC insured, rated four stars on, and offers all the service one could want – including interest on personal checking accounts, local and flexible decision making and on-line banking.  I can testify to the excellent personal service.  The new client development officer on St. John is Abigail Schnell O’Connell.  Give her a call at 340 998-1934 and she can answer all your questions about personal and business banking – or visit Merchant’s web site at
