OHIO COUNTY, W.Va. – In 2013, Wheeling-based Main Street Bank posted its largest annual earnings in its 12-year history.
That’s big news for the bank – and for the community for which it serves.
Since its opening, Main Street Bank has expanded not only with locations but with sponsoring different events and businesses.
The Upper Ohio Valley Italian Heritage Festival in Wheeling draws thousands of people from all over the region. Coordinator Kim Smith says Main Street Bank has been a part of it for the past 10 years.
“They have gotten into bocce and they built the courts and do the carpets and really do a lot for bocce,” Smith said. “They have been great to us we really appreciate it.”
The bank is also a big supporter of the Wheeling Nailers.
“They are big on bringing out groups of fans and bringing their employees and clients out,” Nailers Vice President Craig Bommer said. “They have season tickets, and they're really big on promotional giveaways.”
The bank's success is also music to everyone's ears at the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra.
Director Bruce Wheeler said a big announcement is imminent.
“We've been working them with on creating a premier event in the Wheeling area that right now I’d love to tell you about it, but we are announcing our season in about two weeks,” Wheeler said.
Rich Lucas, president and CEO of Main Street Bank, said his organization will continue to be involved around the community.
