Downtown Organizations Break Out the Ice Buckets
From offering discounts to furloughed workers to raising money for good causes, our downtown businesses continue to show their charitable sides. The videos posted this week for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge not only raise awareness and funds to fight a terrible disease, but also give us a glimpse into the staff people behind some of our favorite downtown establishments. So be sure to check out the videos from Standing Stone National Bank, Ale House 1890, Fairfield National Bank, Diamond Jim's Pizza, and the City of Lancaster.


It's Also Raining Cash - or Rather Cash Machines!

 Downtown was blessed this week with the installation of its first TWO walk-up ATM machines! Previously, a pedestrian had to venture to the back of our bank lots and walk through the drive-thrus - not the most convenient. Both Fairfield National Bank and PNC now offer pedestrian-oriented machines that front Main Street. Thanks to both for making pedestrians a priority and helping us create a more walkable community. Small businesses particularly appreciate cash over credit processing fees, so go spend your cash in downtown Lancaster!
